vROps – Alerts and Alarms Count

vRealize Operations Manager (vROps) stores all symptoms and alerts in an internal database where they are called Alerts and Alarms. To understand how the internal alerts and alarms correlate to symptoms and alerts, have a read of the excellent explanation by James Gill of VirtualCloudIT (https://virtualcloudit.net/2017/06/08/270/).

Once you understand the terminology of alerts and alarms, how can we ensure that our environment doesn’t breach the recommended values for each? Well thankfully, vROps collects these metrics automatically, so we can create a dashboard to display the information needed.

The instructions and files required are available from GitHub and code.vmware.com. Simply follow the instructions to import the necessary Views and the Dashboard to generate the below dashboard.
