One of the new features of Oracle VM 3.4, now released to the Oracle Software Delivery Cloud, is the VM hierarchy viewer. This usability feature makes it easy to view all the resources associated with a virtual machine in a single graphical view.
To use it, log into Oracle VM Manager, select the VM in the Servers and VMs tab, and then click on the Display VM Hierarchy Viewer icon:
That will open a window graphically showing the VM definition and its network and storage components. Click on the image below to see it at full size.
You can mouse over each of the components, as shown above, to display its details in full size, and use the controls at the left to zoom in, select an item, or change the layout of the object hierarchy. This gives you an easy and complete way to quickly view a virtual machine's definition and resources. You can also click the Generate Report buttom to create a marchine-parseable XML description of the VM.
