The Horizon Universal Console's Capacity page displays the current state of cloud-connected Horizon pods (based on Horizon Connection Server technology). In this release, a 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 Horizon 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 Horizon Cloud Dashboard - Health Visibility and Insights into Your Pod Fleet and Tenant Environment.
- 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 and Insights, Health Monitoring, and Help Desk Features Provided in the Horizon Universal Console.
If a monitored pod meets certain requirements, you can change the Horizon pod's state to the managed state. See Use the Horizon Universal Console to 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 Universal Console.
