Advanced VMware vRealize Operations Manager
VMware vRealize Operations Manager is used to deliver intelligent operations management to automate key processes and improve IT efficiency. This course starts by teaching you to configure and create alerts based on environment-specific symptoms. Then, we’ll walk you through manipulating metric data using super metrics. You will learn how and when to use groups, after which we move on to basic dashboard design to deliver easy-to-consume data in our environment. You’ll learn how to import custom data and work with relationships. Next, we’ll revamp our basic dashboard and introduce interactivity to it, so it can show data on selected objects. Finally, you will learn how to set up notifications and will be equipped to manage, run, and use vROps within you own environment.
