User experience monitoring — Experience a single pane of glass where all information that can impact the user experience is presented, allowing for a quick resolution of user experience performance problems. You can get even more insight with a detailed view of the user experience. In addition, you can also troubleshoot and evaluate the user experience from a vWorkspace session in the past with the Session History function.
Hypervisor performance monitoring — Optimize resources, monitor performance, plan for growth, and allocate costs across your vWorkspace deployment with performance monitoring and capacity management of VMware ESX and Hyper-V environments used in vWorkspace. This feature:
- Provides ease of use, scalability, and flexibility to support growing and complex environments
- Delivers deep visibility through detailed architectural representations and out-of-the-box alerts with expert advice for reducing mean-time-to-resolution by at least 75 percent
- Supports VMware monitoring and Microsoft Hyper-V monitoring
Auto-discovery of the virtual desktop environment — Reduce time-to-value drastically with auto-discovery of virtual machines (VMs), TS/RDSH farms, broker infrastructure and more. This automation reduces configuration costs and minimizes the risk and cost of human error.
Performance overview — Identify problems within the virtual desktop environment quickly, enabling you to focus attention on problem areas. This detailed overview accelerates diagnosis and resolution with clear, high-level visual representations, include color-coding and movements. Rich animations highlight the availability and resource consumption of all major components in your virtual desktop infrastructure – including the brokers, VDI TS/RDSH. Detailed hypervisor resource consumption is also shown.
Out-of-the-box alerts — Accelerate mean-time-to-resolution (MTTR) of performance issues with real-time alerts. Detailed alarms help you accurately diagnose the root cause of problems by identifying them as soon as they occur, and alerting you to how many people are affected.
User resource investigation — Determine which users are impacted by performance problems quickly, as well as which terminal servers or VMs are underutilized.
Application and session monitoring — See which TS/RDSH applications are in use – and by which users. Identify the resources used by each application. Reduce the time and effort required to resolve resource bottlenecks.
VDI performance and user diagnostics — Identify which users are logged into which VDIs, how long they’ve been logged in, what their status is, what their resource consumption is, and more. You’ll be able to solve help desk issues more quickly and with greater end-user satisfaction.
System Center integration — Improve customer service, as well as communication between the IT help desk and the desktop administration teams. Alerts from Foglight for Virtual Desktops integrate into System Center Operations Manager to ensure visibility using Enterprise System Management (ESM) tools.
