Study Profiles in virtualization studies

A Study Profile acts as a partial template for the Virtualization Study. It includes the specifications for the hardware configuration of virtual hosts as well as other parameters, such as thresholds and overhead values.

Click Study Profiles in the task pane displayed after selecting the Virtual Planner tab to display the Study Profiles page. You can create, edit, and copy Study Profiles to specify settings appropriate to different consolidation scenarios.

The table on the Study Profiles page lists basic information about the Study Profile, such as the profile name and the type of virtualization platform, as well as the advanced threshold settings for the profile.
