How Does eG Enterprise Monitor the Microsoft AVD Broker?

eG Enterprise provides a specialized Microsoft AVD Broker model to monitor a the AVD connection broker service. To collect metrics on connection brokering, eG Enterprise employs an agentless monitoring approach - i.e., it uses an eG remote agent deployed on any Windows/Linux host/VM in the environment.

In order to collect these metrics, the eG remote agent does the following:

  • Communicates with the Azure subscription and tenant, which are managing the target AVD host pools, and pulls metrics using Azure ARM REST API calls;

  • Reads from host pool logs sent to a Log Analytics Workspace

To enable the eG agent to perform the above, you need to make sure that the requirements detailed in thePre-requisites for Monitoring the Microsoft AVD Brokertopic are fulfilled.
