VMware vROps - A closer look at what's new in vROps 6.3

Without much fanfare, VMware released vRealize Operations Manager (vROps) 6.3 right before VMworld 2016. vROps is VMware's popular Cloud and Software Defined Datacenter (SDDC) monitoring and analytics solution. Besides the usual enhancements to most features including configuration, licensing, alerting, reports, policies as well as introducing some new dashboards and widgets, this release is jampacked with hidden gems all over the place. A number of bug fixes were also included. This post will elaborate on some of the new features and enhancements beyond what was provided in the press release. So read on because there are some cool things that VMware omitted from the official release materials that are well worth you time.
