View Transfer Events

A View Transfer Server is a software service that manages and streamlines data transfers between the datacenter and View desktops that are checked out for use on end users' local systems. Periodic analysis of the events related to this service in the events database, will provide early warnings of transfer issues.  

This test reports the number and details of transfer events recorded in the events database.

Target of the test : A VMware Horizon Connection server

Agent deploying the test : An internal agent

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:
