When configuring the VMWare probe via AC you need to decide if you wish to use templates or not. Templates are configured via the template editor. In order to use the template editor it is necessary to enable bulk mode before you create any profiles.
Once bulk mode is enabled, and a profile configured, the VMWare probe will immediately begin sending QoS Metrics and Alarms without any further configuration.
This is unexpected if you are used to configuring the VMWare probe via Infrastructure Manager (IM) as, when configured by IM, it was necessary to either apply a template or manually configure the probe for QoS and Alarms.
The "UMP Metrics" template is configured to drive all the UMP Dashboard portlets and the decision was thus made to enable this by default with AC in order to ensure the User Experience in UMP was complete.
It is possible to override this template or even disable it. It should be noted that doing so will have an impact on the UMP dashboards and could lead to empty portlets.
