Version 5.7.1 of vCenter Operations has a problem displaying Data in Dashboards if you install the standalone Analytics Server with non english language settings. To workaround the problem add “Duser.language=en” to the vcopsWebService configuration and restart the service.
As described in SQL queries to filter vCOps alerts and events it is not possible to filter events and alarms by other things than the resource name column. It is also not possible to filter by alarm type or level.
With ESXTOP or the vCenter performance tab of a VM you can monitor the co-stop metric to check for vSMP performance problems. vCOps can show you that information for all the VMs on a host, a resource pool, a cluster, a vCenter or your complete environment.
In the current version of vCenter Operations it is not possible to filter events and alarms by the info column, but only by the resource name column. With SQL queries you can workaround that limitation.
