Dim traversalDepth As TraversalDepth
Dim returnValue As Dictionary(Of T, ReadOnlyCollection(Of MonitoringObject))

returnValue = instance.GetRelatedMonitoringObjects(monitoringObjects, relationshipClass, traversalDepth)

The monitoring objects to find related objects for.


The relationship class that is used in the search for related monitoring objects.


A value that modifies the limits of the relationshipClass parameter. A value of OneLevel includes only instances of the specified class in the scope of the returned results. A value of Recursive includes instances of the specified class and all instances that are contained by those instances.

Return Value

A read-only collection of MonitoringObject objects.
