The vCloud view provides an overview of vCloud, Provider vDCs, and Organization vDCs in terms of CPU, memory, and datastore utilization for each entity. It is based on cloud database structures and enables you to:
- View the capacity for vCloud, Provider vDCs, and Organization vDCs
- Identify resource bottlenecks
- Discover underutilized resources
- Track resources that are experiencing, or will soon experience capacity shortfalls
Ensure that the administrator has completed the following tasks:

Certified data sources
The certified data sources for these views are:
- BMC - TrueSight Capacity Optimization Gateway VIS files parser
- Integrating with VMware vCloud Director
You must configure and run one of these ETL modules to import data into the view.
If you are importing data from an ETL module other than the certified data source, then ensure that you have all the metrics populated in the ETL module so that the view shows the data.
The following video (4:22) provides a brief introduction of the vCloud views.
