Simulator Endpoint Test

For a logon simulator to perform logon simulation, it is essential for the user to establish a user session by logging into the logon simulation endpoint at all times. Sometimes, the logon simulation endpoint may be down or the user may face connectivity issues to the logon simulation endpoint. During such circumstances, the logon simulator may stop the simulation process. When the simulation stops, administrators should quickly troubleshoot and resolve the issue at the earliest. To aid administrators in this regard, eG Enterprise offers the Simulator Endpoint test.

By closely monitoring the logon simulation endpoint, this test reports whether/not the user session on the endpoint is active.

Target of the test : VMware Horizon Connection Server 7.x

Agent deploying the test : An external agent

Outputs of the test : One set of results for the target logon simulation endpoint on which simulation is to be performed

Configurable parameters for the test
Parameter Description

Test Period

How often should the test be executed. The default is 15 minutes.


The host for which the test is to be configured.


Refers to the port used by the target server. By default, this is set to NULL.

Console Username

The simulator needs to run in the account of a user who has local administrator rights on the simulation end point - i.e., the system on which the external agent has been installed. Specify the name of this user here. This user should also be logged in at all times for the simulator to run continuously.

Console Domain

If the user specified in the Console Username belongs to a domain, specify the name of the domain in the Console Domain text box. By default, none is specified against this text box.

Measurements made by the test
Measurement Description Measurement Unit Interpretation

Is endpoint user session active?

Indicates whether/not the user session on the logon simulation endpoint is active.


The values reported by this measure and its numeric equivalents are mentioned in the table below:

Measure value Numeric Value
No 0
Yes 1


By default, this measure reports the Measure Values listed in the table above to indicate whether/not the user session on the logon simulation endpoint is active. The graph of this measure however, is represented using the numeric equivalents only i.e., 0 or 1.
