To simplify the management of the connected infrastructure, Veeam ONE Monitor allows organizing virtual infrastructure objects into categories and groups.
Category is a logical division of the virtual infrastructure. Group is a collection of virtual infrastructure objects that share same characteristics or match same criteria. You can think of a group as a tag assigned to an object. Each category includes one or more groups.
By default, Veeam ONE Monitor categorizes objects into predefined groups. To categorize objects into different groups, you can use the following methods:
- Single-Parameter Categorization — this method allows you to create groups automatically based on the values of a single property.
- Multiple-Condition Categorization — this method allows you to create groups manually by combining multiple properties and logical operators.
- Grouping Expressions — this method allows you to create groups based on properties, operators and methods included into expressions.
In this section, you will review the following examples:
- Single-parameter categorization based on vCPU count
- Multiple-condition categorization based on RAM and guest OS
For more information about categorization, see section Business View of the Veeam ONE Monitor User Guide.
