Configuring Single-Parameter Categorization

Single-parameter categorization is based on object properties specified within a hypervisor and Veeam Backup & Replication server. When you select a property as a categorization condition, Veeam ONE Monitor automatically creates a group for each unique value of the selected property. All objects with the same property value will fall into one group.

Groups created using the single property method have dynamic membership. If the property value changes, the object can be moved into another group or excluded from categorization when the next data collection runs.

For example, you can categorize VMs based on their power state. After data collection, Veeam ONE Monitor will create three groups: Powered On, Powered Off and Suspended. If a VM power state changes, this VM will be moved into another group next time data collection runs.

To categorize objects using a single property:

  1. Open Veeam ONE Monitor.

For details, see Accessing Veeam ONE Monitor.

  1. In the inventory pane, navigate to the Business View node.
  2. Launch the Categorization Wizard:
  1. In the information pane, switch to the Categories tab.
  2. In the Actions pane, click Add Category.

Alternatively, in the Business View tree, right-click the main node and select Add Category.

Veeam ONE Monitor will export categories as tag categories and groups as tags.

Veeam ONE Monitor will export categories as custom properties and groups as property values.

Veeam ONE Monitor will periodically overwrite created tags and custom properties to keep categorization data in synchronization with vCenter Server and System Center Virtual Machine Manager.

Configuring Single-Parameter Categorization Note:

This step is not available if you enable import of categorization data from vCenter Server, System Center Virtual Machine Manager. For more information on importing categorization model, see Selecting Categorization Model.
