Logon Monitoring is Critical to Deliver Superior VDI User Experience
The success of your VMware Horizon deployment depends on delivering the best user experience to VDI end-users and ensure business continuity. Logon experience is one of the most crucial factors impacting end-user experience. When logon is slow or fails, end-users may not be able to access their VDI session properly and this directly affects business productivity.
There are many steps involved in the Horizon logon process (browser access, authentication, session establishment, application enumeration and application launch). A problem in any one of these steps will impact logon performance and cause slowdowns. VDI admininstrators need end-to-end visibility into the Horizon logon process to be able to troubleshoot user logon issues when accessing virtualized applications or desktops.
eG Enterprise Express Logon Simulator: A Must Have Tool for VDI Admins
With the eG Enterprise Express Logon Simulator, VDI admins can easily simulate Horizon logon scenarios and test logon performance from any local or remote endpoint. eG Enterprise Express Logon Simulator tests every step of the logon sequence and highlights the step that has failed or is slow, so the VDI admin can proactively troubleshoot the issue before real users are affected.
