Veeam VMware Collector

Veeam Collector server is a computer that will host Ops Mgr Agent (or Management Server) and the Veeam Collector component. Depending on the size of the VMware infrastructure and the monitoring requirements (for example, high-availability), more than one Collector server may be required. For details, see the Architecture Overview Guide.

The Collector component may be installed on a standard Ops Mgr Agent in Proxy mode. However maximum scalability and performance will be obtained by installing the Veeam Collector on an Ops Mgr Management Server. Depending on the size of the monitored VMware environment, Management Server(s) dedicated to the Collector role may be required.
