Monitoring VDI-in-a-Box On Hyper-V
To monitor Microsoft Hyper-V and the vdimanager operating on it, use the VDI-in-a-Box / Hyper-V monitoring model.
Figure 1 : Layer model of VDI in a Box/Hyper-V
Each layer of this model is mapped to tests that report a variety of statistics related to the Microsoft Hyper-V and the VDI in a box appliance running on it. While the five layers at the bottom of the layer model focus on the health of the operating system and the network of the Hyper-V host, the top two layers perform ‘In-N-Out’ monitoring of the virtual desktops operating on the target Hyper-V server. To ascertain the status of the vdimanager and its operations on the other hand, you need to use the Virtual Desktops and VDI in a Box Broker layers.
To enable the eG remote agent to pull out all these performance statistics, you first need to make sure that the following pre-requisites are in place:
For monitoring the vdimanager:
For ‘In-N-Out’ monitoring of the Microsoft Hyper-V and its VMs:
For details on the Virtual Desktops and VDI In a Box Broker layers refer to Managing the VDI-in-a-Box on VMware vSphere. For all the other layers, refer to the Monitoring Microsoft Hyper-V document.
