How to Monitor Microsoft App-V Using eG Enterprise?

eG Enterprise monitors the Microsoft App-V in both agent-based and agentless manners. An eG agent connects to database of the Microsoft App-V and collects metrics pertaining to its performance.

Managing the Microsoft App-V Management Server

The eG Enterprise cannot automatically discover the Microsoft App-V Management Server. This implies that you need to manually add the component for monitoring. Remember that the eG Enterprise automatically manages the components that are added manually. To add a Microsoft App-V Management Server, do the following:

  1. Log into the eG administrative interface.
  2. Follow the Components -> Add/Modify menu sequence in the Infrastructure tile of the Admin menu.
  3. In the COMPONENT page that appears next, select Microsoft App-V Management Server as the Component type. Then, click the Add New Component button. This will invoke Figure 1.

  4. Specify the Host IP and the Nick name of the Microsoft App-V Management Server in Figure 1.
  5. The Port number will be set as 8080 by default. If the Microsoft App-V Management Server is listening on a different port in your environment, then override this default setting.
  6. Then, click on the Add button to add the Microsoft App-V Management Server for monitoring.

Configuring the tests

  1. When you attempt to sign out, a list of unconfigured tests appears ( see Figure 2).

  2. Click and configure the tests one after another. To know how to configure these tests, refer to Monitoring APP-V Management Server chapter.
  3. Finally, signout of the eG administrative interface.
