How Does eG Enterprise Monitor VMware Horizon Cluster/Pod?
eG Enterprise monitors the VMware Horizon Cluster/Pod using a single eG agent on any remote host in the environment. This agent is capable of monitoring the performance of the Cloud Pod and collect the required metrics by executing the Powershell scripts.
To enable the eG agent to collect the required metrics, the following pre-requisites should be fulfilled:
- Ensure that the user accessing the target VMware Horizon Cluster/Pod should possess read-only administrator role defined in the Horizon View management console.
Ensure that the VMware PowerCLI executable is installed on the remote host on which the eG agent resides. If the VMware PowerCLI is not installed, then, you can download the same from the following location:
Managing the VMware Horizon Cluster/Pod
To achieve this, follow the steps given below:
- Log into the eG admin interface.
eG Enterprise cannot automatically discover the VMware Horizon Cluster/Pod. You need to manually add the component using the COMPONENTS page (see Figure 1) that appears when the Infrastructure -> Components -> Add/Modify menu sequence is followed. Remember that components manually added are managed automatically.
- Specify the Nick name of the VMware Horizon Cluster/Pod in Figure 1. Also select Other as the OS and Other as the Mode. Then, choose a remote agent from the Remote agent drop down.
- Then, click the Add button to register the changes.
Now, when you attempt to sign out of the eG admin interface, Figure 2 appears, listing the tests requiring manual configuration.
