VMware Horizon View Monitoring

Virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) implementations such as the VMware Horizon View helps enterprises combat rising data center costs and management headaches. However, many VDI implementations never reach production level due to costly downtime issues, poor performance and end-user complaints.

Applications Manager enables comprehensive performance monitoring of the entire VMware Horizon View service to ensure a healthy VDI environment. It helps you drill down into the Horizon View implementation and its underlying components, including the View connection broker, hypervisor, VMs, applications, active directory, database, servers and storage hardware. It enables you to minimize downtime, quickly identify performance issues and take corrective action before the end users are affected.
