Horizon Application Pools Test

This test monitors the status of each application pool configured on the VMware Horizon Cluster/Pod and also reports whether/not each application pool is enabled. In addition, this test also reports the number of RDS hosts that are using each application pool.

Target of the test : A VMware Horizon Cluster/Pod

Agent deploying the test : A remote agent

Outputs of the test : One set of results for each application pool configured on the VMware Horizon Cluster/Pod 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

Refers to the port used by the target VMware Horizon Cluster/Pod. By default, this is set to NULL.

Connection Server Name

By default, this test connects to every VMware Horizon Connection Server configured in the VMware Horizon Cluster/Pod remotely and collects the required metrics. For this, it is necessary to specify valid credentials of the VMware Horizon Connection Servers. To help administrators provide these credentials quickly and easily, the eG administrative interface embeds a special configuration page. To access this page, simply click on the encircled '+' icon that appears alongside this parameter in the test configuration page. To know how to use this special page, refer to Configuring the VMware Horizon Connection Servers for Monitoring.

DD Frequency

Refers to the frequency with which detailed diagnosis measures are to be generated for this test. The default is 1:1. This indicates that, by default, detailed measures will be generated every time this test runs, and also every time the test detects a problem. You can modify this frequency, if you so desire. Also, if you intend to disable the detailed diagnosis capability for this test, you can do so by specifying none against DD Frequency.

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.
