RDS Farm is a collection of RDS Hosts that are mostly identically configured Window Servers. This dashboard gives an overall performance of the RDS Farms, with the ability to drill down and troubleshoot the farm performance.

Design Consideration

It is designed both as an entry point and as a drill down from the Datacenter dashboard. From this dashboard, you can drill down into one of the hosts in the farm.

How to Use the Dashboard

Review the health chart at the top of the dashboard.

  • Count of Farms in the Red shows the number of Horizon Pods with red Datacenter KPI. Expect this to be 0 all the time, as none of them should be in the red because red is the worst level.

Review the Farms Performance Distribution bar chart.

  • Expect all of them to be in the green range. At the very least, none of them should be in the red.

  • Selecting one of the bars reveals the objects within the bucket. Click the Maximize button in the tool bar of the widget to clearly see the list. You cannot select one of the rows to drive other widget.

Review the table RDS Farms and Hosts.

  • Expect all of them to be in the green range. At the very least, none of them should be in the red.

  • Pay attention to the Hosts that are not performing.

  • The number of sessions include both connected and disconnected session.

Select one of the entries in the table.

  • The KPI of the selected entry is shown in the scoreboards. There are five scoreboards showing different aspects of performance.

  • Its relevant property is shown in the property widget.

Select one or more entries in the scoreboard.

  • The line chart below the scoreboard plots the selected metrics.

  • Use the metric chart widget to compare metrics to see if there is any correlation.

  • You can also stack them. For example, you can combine Read IOPS and Write IOPS to get the Total IOPS. But, you should not combine Read Latency and Write Latency to get total latency as you must consider the read to write ratio.
