vRealize Operations Manager Super Metrics

Super metrics are the equivalent of a custom metric, it can be used to help simplify tracking by watching a few key metrics instead of many metrics. By bringing forward related data, it helps to troubleshoot specific information, which speeds time to resolution. A super metric is a mathematical formula that contains one or more metrics.

After you create a super metrics, you assign it to one or more object types. For instance, you could assign a super metrics to cluster object (resource kinds) that calculates the average memory demand on all virtual machines in the cluster.
