Using vCenter Maps

A vCenter map is a visual representation of your vCenter Server topology. Maps show the relationships between the virtual and physical resources available to vCenter Server.

Maps are available only when the vSphere Client is connected to a vCenter Server system.

The maps can help you determine such things as which clusters or hosts are most densely populated, which networks are most critical, and which storage devices are being utilized. vCenter Server provides the following map views.

Virtual Machine Resources Displays virtual machine-centric relationships.


Host Resources Displays host-centric relationships


Datastore Resources Displays datastore-centric relationships


vMotion Resources Displays hosts available for vMotion migration.

This is available per virtual machine


You can customize all map views, except vMotion Resources maps.
