Do you need to monitor the application performance and resource usage for the endpoints in a Horizon Mirage environment?
The following is an excerpt from a blog by Tina de Benedictis at VMware that explains the solution: the integration of VMware Horizon Mirage with Flexera AdminStudio Virtual Desktop Assessment.
VMware Horizon Mirage provides a solution for IT to manage and provision Windows desktops, but IT administrators can also benefit from application assessment and endpoint-monitoring solutions that make it possible to see how applications are used, how applications perform, and how endpoints behave in your environment. VMware has collaborated with Flexera Software to integrate VMware Horizon Mirage with Flexera AdminStudio Virtual Desktop Assessment.
The Flexera AdminStudio Virtual Desktop Assessment solution delivers a sophisticated report on how applications behave in your environment. The Virtual Desktop Assessment Manager component collects statistics from Flexera Profile Collector agents installed on endpoints and provides a user interface for IT administrators to review the statistics. IT administrators can set up a threshold value to alert them if an application performs poorly or the user experience is degraded on an endpoint.
Flexera Profile Collector is a lightweight agent that runs on desktop and laptop computers to monitor endpoint behavior and capture data about users, applications, and computers. The agent collects data on usage, application consumption of memory, network traffic, and so on. This agent runs completely in the background, using minimal resources. Because it has a near-zero footprint, it runs unnoticed by the users being monitored but provides IT with the information they need to make informed decisions.
