What the eG VDI-in-a-Box Monitor Reveals?
Once the pre-requisites are fulfilled, the eG agent will be able to pull out a variety of performance information, with the help of which the following can be ascertained:
- Is the VDI-in-a-Box appliance powered on and available?
- Are the key VDI-in-a-Box processes (tomcat, license manager, etc.) running?
- Is the VDI-in-a-Box manager accessible over HTTP/S?
- If so, how quickly is the VDI-in-a-Box manager responding to HTTP/S connection requests?
- Are the key TCP ports used for communication with other VDI-in-a-Box managers in a grid open?
- How many VDI-in-a-Box managers are in the grid and what is their state?
- Is any of the servers in the grid seeing a performance bottleneck?
- How many virtual desktop licenses are installed and how many are in use?
- Are sufficient licenses available to provision additional virtual desktops?
- Is the hardware working well?
- Is the hypervisor resource bottlenecked – for CPU or memory?
- What is the space utilization of the local data stores?
- Is any of the storage LUNs seeing excessive I/O operations? Which one?
- Are the network interfaces working well?
- How many VMs are powered on simultaneously?
- Is any VM taking excessive resources?
- What is the status of the virtual desktops configured on the VDI-in-a-Box broker?
- How many virtual desktops are currently in use on a physical server?
- Is any virtual desktop using excessive amount of CPU or memory or causing a lot of IOPS?
- If so, what application processes within the virtual desktop are responsible for the resource consumption?
- Is there excessive queuing for disk access on any of the Virtual Desktops?
- What are peak usage times of the virtual desktops?
- Is there sufficient disk space in each of the disk partitions of the virtual desktop?
|Users and Sessions
- Who are the users logged on to the Virtual Desktops?
- What is the current state of a user's desktop session?
- When did a user login and how long did he/she remain logged in for?
- Who are the most resource intensive users?
