The Desktop Providers Layer

Desktop providers encapsulate the details of the underlying virtualization platform. Typically, the Oracle VDI broker manages desktops provided by VMware vSphere/ESX servers, Microsoft Hyper-V, and Oracle VM VirtualBox. This layer focuses on the health of the broker's database and the desktop providers managed by the broker.

Using the tests mapped to this layer, you can receive prompt alerts when the following occur:

  • When the broker's database becomes unavailable;
  • When a desktop provider is suddenly rendered unresponsive or is experiencing errors;
  • If a desktop provider experiences a severe resource contention;
