Replication Details Test

To provide high availability and load balancing, you can install one or more additional instances of VMware Horizon Connection Server that replicate an existing Connection Server instance. After a replica installation, the existing and newly installed instances of Connection Server are identical. When a change is made on one instance, the updated information is copied to the replicated instances simultaneously. If any of the replicated instances fails, the other instances in the group continue to operate such that operations of the Horizon Connection server would be uninterrupted. If the replications fail due to authentication or configuration problems, then, high availability of the Connection Server will be uncertain. To avoid such eventualities, you should continuously monitor the replication processes within the target environment and take necessary actions swiftly if the replication process fails. The Replication Details test helps you in this regard!

This test tracks the replications processes and reports the number of replications that were successful and the number of replications that failed in the target environment.

Target of the test : A VMware Horizon Connection Server

Agent deploying the test : An internal agent

Outputs of the test : One set of results for the VMware Horizon Connection Server 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 VMware Horizon Connection Server. The default port number is NULL.

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 Onoption. To disable the capability, click on the Offoption.

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.
Measurements made by the test
Measurement Description Measurement Unit Interpretation

Number of success

Indicates the number of replications that were performed successfully during the last measurement period.

Number

A high value is desired for this measure. For complete details of the successful replication attempts, use the detailed diagnosis of this measure.

Number of failure

Indicates the number of replications that failed during the last measurement period.

Number

Ideally, the value of this measure should be zero. For complete details of the failed replication attempts, use the detailed diagnosis of this measure.
