The Horizon Cloud Administration Console's Capacity page displays the current state of those Horizon pods that are connected to your Horizon Cloud tenant under the State column. In this release, a cloud-connected Horizon pod can be in either monitored or managed state. Only when the pod is in managed state can you use that pod's resources in multi-cloud assignments (MCAs).
Monitored state is the default state of a pod after you first connect the pod to your Horizon Cloud environment. The following list describes the features available for a pod in monitored state:
- The Dashboard page provides an overall health report on the components of a monitored pod. This page also displays information about resource usage, current user sessions, and connection statistics for the pod. See Health Visibility and Insights into Your Cloud-Connected Pods Provided by the Cloud Monitoring Service in Horizon Cloud.
- The Capacity page displays details about the pod such as its status, location, and state. See Managing Your Cloud-Connected Pods, for All Horizon Cloud Supported Pod Types.
- The console provides a user-based search feature from which you can perform help-desk operations to support your users. See Introducing the Cloud Monitoring Service's Unified Visibility, Health Monitoring, and Help Desk Features Provided in Horizon Cloud.
If a monitored pod meets certain requirements, you can change the pod's state to the managed state. See Horizon Cloud - Change a Cloud-Connected Horizon Pod to Managed State.
A managed pod offers all the features available for a monitored pod. In addition, you can create multi-cloud assignments that use resources from a managed pod, and manage those multi-cloud assignments using the Horizon Cloud Administration Console.
