Vmware

The integration of VMware Horizon View Performance is another step into that direction to monitor the virtual desktop performance from inside the guest and not just the outside view using VMware vCenter data.

That offers a single view that provides visibility from the end user VDI experience to operating system, storage and network issues. All critical metrics are tracked for PCoIP and VMware Blast, gathering data for logon duration, frames per second, data transfer and application, OS and ESXi performance.

Since version 4.9 we´re ready to integrate data from all of your virtual desktops to get performance data from PCoIP and the new VMware Blast protocol.

The architecture consists of a Guest agent that runs within your Microsoft Windows virtual desktops as a Windows service and gathers all required PCoIP or Blast metrics, depending on the protocol you´re using and the VMware View dashboard that makes sense of the received data in a simple and efficient way.

The dashboard merges information of the Guest OS, VMware VMkernel information and PCoIP or Blast metrics.

Especially critical metrics like Frames per Second, RTL or Packet loss are directly visible. Furthermore you can check if network bandwidth is taken using USB devices.

Combined with VMware Performance data directly from the VMkernel it makes a complete picture!
