You need to add additional End Point Operations Plug In's, (Administration > Configuration > End Point Operations)

You also need to be running Advanced or Enterprise depending on what you wanted to monitor.

vROPS contains a feature called Endpoint Operations Monitoring. This feature enables vROPS to monitor middleware such as OS and applications. This feature uses a small agent (Endpoint Operations Agent) installed on the server, either physical or virtual, to collect metrics and report them back to vROPS.

For vROPS to understande these metrics, you will need a Management Pack for the applicable application. These Management Packs can be found in the VMware Solution Exchange (VSX), Vsx

Each Management Pack will have a set of predefined dashboard, reports, etc to monitor the application.

To use this feature you will need either vROPS Advanced or Enterprise. vROPS Enterprise is the only edition supporting application middleware monitoring, for a comparison of the editions, vRealize Operations IT Operations Management: VMware

VSX is the Vmware Solutions Exchange. It is a website that has the management packs for the applications and hardware.

for example if you want to monitor IIS download and install the Management pack for IIS

Please go to the documentation site and read about the process there. It is very well documented. The overview of the process is:

  1. Install vROps
  2. Install necessary management packs for your application
  3. Alternative to #2, some management packs do not require agents in-guest (Blue Medora).
  4. Install EpOps agent inside guest OS.
  5. Configure vROps dashboards, views, and reports as desired.
