Identifying Elastic Runtime Jobs Using vCenter

Page last updated:

To effectively monitor, control, and manage the virtual machines making up your Elastic Runtime deployment, you may need to identify which VM corresponds to a particular job in Elastic Runtime. You can find the CID of a particular VM from Pivotal Cloud Foundry (PCF) Operations Manager by navigating to Elastic Runtime > Status.

If you have deployed Elastic Runtime to VMware vSphere, you can also identify which Elastic Runtime job corresponds to which VM using the vCenter vSphere client.

Note: The CID shown in Ops Manager is the name of the machine in vCenter.

  1. Launch the vSphere client and log in to the vCenter Server system.
