Configurable parameters for the test
Parameter Description

Test period

How often should the test be executed

Host

The host for which the test is to be configured.

Port

The port number at which the specified Host listens to.

SudoPath

This test executes certain privileged VDA (Virtual Desktop Access) commands to pull out the desired metrics from the broker. To enable the test to run these commands, you first need to install a sudo package on the broker host. The procedure for installing this package is detailed in Pre-requisites for Monitoring the Oracle VDI Broker in an Agent-based Manner. Once the package is installed, you need to specify the full path to the install directory of the sudo package in the SudoPath text box.

Detailed Diagnosis

To make diagnosis more efficient and accurate, the eG Enterprise suite embeds an optional detailed diagnostic capability. With this capability, the eG agents can be configured to run detailed, more elaborate tests as and when specific problems are detected. To enable the detailed diagnosis capability of this test for a particular server, choose the On option. To disable the capability, click on the Off option.

The option to selectively enable/disable the detailed diagnosis capability will be available only if the following conditions are fulfilled:

  • The eG manager license should allow the detailed diagnosis capability
  • Both the normal and abnormal frequencies configured for the detailed diagnosis measures should not be 0.
Measurements made by the test
Measurement Description Measurement Unit Interpretation

Total desktops

Indicates the total number of desktops currently managed by the broker.

A desktop is in the 'Idle' state whenever it is assigned and the user is not using it; for instance, when the desktop is assigned and the user has not logged in yet or when the desktop is assigned and the user just logged out. A desktop is recycled after it remains in the idle state for a configurable amount of time.

A desktop is Reserved when it is being worked on by the Oracle VDI Core. This desktop state usually occurs when the desktop is the source of a manual copy operation or the desktop is recycled. The desktop will become available after leaving the Reserved state.
