View TCP Ports Test

This test monitors configured ports on the VMware Horizon Connection Server and reports the availability and responsiveness of each port. This way, you can instantly identify unavailable and unresponsive ports on the server.

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 each target configured for monitoring

Configurable parameters for the test
Parameter Description

Test Period

How often should the test be executed


The host for which the test is to be configured


Refers to the port used by VMware Horizon Connection Server. The default port number is NULL.


Specify either a comma-separated list of port numbers that are to be tested (e.g., 80,7077,1521), or a comma-separated list of port name:port number pairs that are to be tested (eg., JMS:4001,JMSIR:4100). In the latter case, the port name will be displayed in the monitor interface.

Measurements made by the test
Measurement Description Measurement Unit Interpretation

Port Connectivity Status

Indicates whether this port is available or not.


This measure will report the value 100, if the port is identified by the View Agent, and will report the value 0 if the View Agent is not able to identify the port.

Response time

Indicates the time taken by this port to respond to a request.


An increase in response time can be caused by several factors such as a server bottleneck, a configuration problem with the DNS server, a network problem, etc.
