Browsing Red Hat servers

You can browse Red Hat virtualization servers to review a variety of server objects (such as domains, storage pools, and network configurations) related to the RHEV environment.


Live browse of hosts running Red Hat Enterprise Linux (and the domains or virtual machines on those hosts) requires that a RHEV Manager agent is installed on the RHEV Manager server, and that the appropriate configuration objects were distributed to the host system. For more information, see Distributing configuration objects.

To browse a RHEV Manager server

  1. In the Servers folder, navigate to the server running RHEV Manager.
  2. Right-click the server and select Browse.
  3. In the Live Browse tab or the content editor, expand the Live node.
  4. Expand the RHEV Manager server object type to display the nodes. The following table describes the structure of the RHEV Manager server object type.




    Shows all the clusters on the RHEV Manager. This view includes:

    • Configuration information about the clusters associated with the RHEV Manager server, such as total hosts, CPU model, and total CPU
    • Storages available to the host servers
    • Networks connected to the host servers
    • Specific server properties of the cluster, such as parent datacenter for the cluster
    • Basic identifying information, such as cluster name and description
    • Below each cluster, the networks and storage associated with the cluster

    Data Centers

    Shows all the data centers to which the RHEV Manager server belongs. This view includes:

    • Configuration information about the data center, such as storage type and compatibility version
    • Overall status of the data center
    • Basic identifying information, such as data center name and description


    Shows configuration and software information about each host in the RHEV Manager. The Hosts view includes all RHEL hosts belonging to all clusters as well as those that do not belong to a cluster. For each host, the view lists includes:

    • Server properties, such as host name, parent datacenter, parent cluster, and path
    • Hardware configuration, which includes total CPU, CPU speed, CPU model, address, and so on
    • Overall status of the host


    Lists the available RHEV Manager templates. A virtual machine template is a reusable image created from an existing virtual machine. This view lists each available template and provides key configuration information for the template, such as:

    • Template hardware, including the number of cores, number of sockets, cores per socket, and virtual machine memory
    • Template properties, such as the template name, guest operating system, parent datacenter, and cluster

    Virtual Machines

    Lists all the virtual machines in the RHEV Manager, in alphabetical order and the power status for each. The virtual machine view is a quick way to browse the virtual machines in the environment without having to navigate to each RHEL host. For each virtual machine, you can view:

    • Network — Displays network configuration information for the virtual machine, such as network name, MAC address, and adapter type.
    • Storage — Displays information about all of the storage devices that are available to the virtual machine
    • CPU — Displays the number of cores, number of sockets, and cores per socket
    • Memory — Displays the allocated memory for the virtual machine

    RHEV-M Configuration

    Shows information about the RHEV Manager version
