QVD Node Summary Test

QVD is designed to work with clusters of Server Nodes, each running the virtual machines to service different sets of users. To know which Server Nodes in a cluster are up, running, and ready for use, and which ones are not and why, use the QVD Node Summary test. This test monitors the node cluster, reports the status of the nodes in the cluster, and reveals which node is in which state currently.

Target of the test : A Quality Virtual Desktop Node

Agent deploying the test : A remote agent

Outputs of the test : One set of results for the Quality Virtual Desktop being monitored.

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 hosts

Indicates the total number of nodes in this Server Node cluster.

Number

The detailed diagnosis of this measure if enabled, lists the ID, the name of the node, the IP address of the node, the House keeping Daemon of the node, the number of desktops assigned to the node, the current state of the node and whether/not the node is in the Blocked state.

Powered on hosts

Indicates the number of nodes in this Server Node cluster that are powered on currently.

Number

The detailed diagnosis of this measure if enabled, provides the details of the powered-on nodes such as the ID, the name of the node, the IP address of the node, the House keeping Daemon of the node, the number of desktops assigned to the node, the current state of the node and whether/not the node is in the Blocked state.

Powered off hosts

Indicates the number of nodes in this Server Node cluster that are powered off currently.

Number

The detailed diagnosis of this measure if enabled, provides the details of the powered-off nodes such as the ID, the name of the node, the IP address of the node, the House keeping Daemon of the node, the number of desktops assigned to the node, the current state of the node and whether/not the node is in the Blocked state.

Starting hosts

Indicates the number of nodes in this cluster that are starting currently.

Number

The detailed diagnosis of this measure if enabled, provides the details of the nodes that are starting; these details include the ID of the node, the name of the node, the IP address of the node, the House keeping Daemon of the node, the number of desktops assigned to the node, the current state of the node and whether/not the node is in the Blocked state.

Stopping hosts

Indicates the number of nodes in this cluster that are stopping currently.

Number

The detailed diagnosis of this measure if enabled, provides the details of the nodes that are stopping; these details include the ID of the node, the name of the node, the IP address of the node, the House keeping Daemon of the node, the number of desktops assigned to the node, the current state of the node and whether/not the node is in the Blocked state.

Lost hosts

Indicates the number of nodes for which connection was lost.

Number

The detailed diagnosis of this measure if enabled, provides the details of the nodes to which connection was lost; these details include the ID of the node, the name of the node, the IP address of the node, the House keeping Daemon of the node, the number of desktops assigned to the node, the current state of the node and whether/not the node is in the Blocked state.

Blocked hosts

Indicates the number of hosts that are currently blocked.

Number

The detailed diagnosis of this measure if enabled, lists the details of the hosts that are blocked; these details include the ID of the node, the name of the node, the IP address of the node, the House keeping Daemon of the node, the number of desktops assigned to the node, the current state of the node.

The detailed diagnosis of the Total hosts measure (see Figure 1) if enabled, lists the ID, the name of the node, the IP address of the node, the House keeping Daemon of the node, the number of desktops assigned to the node, the current state of the node and whether/not the node is in the.
