vCenter data collected

Discovery identifies and classifies information about VMware vCenter servers.

vCenter data

Discovery uses the VMware - vCenter probe to collect this data from vCenter.

vCenter relationships

Discovery automatically creates relationships for vCenter components using data from a key class. Subsequent Discoveries use the same key class to automatically validate and remove relationships that are no longer valid.
