VDI Manager Status Test

The Oracle VDI Manager is a web administration tool that enables Oracle VDI administrators to configure user groups, desktop pools, and hypervisor and storage resources. Whenever administrators complaint of being unable to access this web-based interface, you can use this test to verify whether the VDI manager is running or not, and if running, whether it is consuming resources optimally or not.

Target of the test : An Oracle VDI Broker

Agent deploying the test : An internal/remote agent

Outputs of the test : One set of results for the Oracle VDI broker being monitored.

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

Status

Indicates whether the VDI manager is currently running or not.

 

If the VDI manager is running, then this measure will report the value Running. If the VDI manager is not running, then this measure will report the value Not running.

The table below lists the numeric values that correspond to each of the states mentioned above:

State Numeric Value
Running 100
Not running 0

Note:

Typically, this measure will report the States indicated in the table above as its values. However, in the graph of this measure, the status of the VDI manager will be represented using the numeric equivalents only - i.e., 0 and 100.

Use the detailed diagnosis of this measure to know which processes are currently running for the Oracle VDI Manager (web service).

Memory utilization

Indicates the percentage of memory utilized by the VDI manager service.

Percent

Ideally, the value of this measure should be low. A very high value indicates that too much memory is being consumed by the VDI manager.

CPU utilization

Indicates the percentage of CPU consumed by the VDI manager service.

Percent

Ideally, the value of this measure should be low. A very high value indicates that too much CPU is being consumed by the VDI manager.
