vCenter Solutions Manager is a view in the vSphere web client that allows you to monitor and interact with solutions that are registered with a vCenter Server instance.

Solutions provide information about their health and status to Solutions Manager. Solutions Manager displays this health and status information in the vSphere web client.

Solutions Manager shows three standard tabs for each running solution. The tabs list the virtual machines that a solution deploys and manages, show the health, name, company URL, and version of the solution, and show any vServices that the solution provides.

A solution can also add one or more tabs to Solutions Manager, for example to allow users to configure the solution, or to provide access in the vSphere web client interface to the functions of the solution.
