A resource manager is a service provider resource that allows multiple desktop managers to communicate with their virtual physical infrastructure resources. A resource manager integrates with the hypervisor and storage infrastructure in a given data center. A single resource manager appliance can be shared across multiple tenants.

The Resource Managers pane on the left side of the Resources page provides a tree view of the desktop managers and compute resources associated with each resource manager in the selected data center. A data center has associated with it a minimum of two resource managers, one each for the SP and tenants. Each tenant resource manager has desktop managers and compute resources associated with it:

  • Expand the tree for the resource manager to show the defined desktop managers, vCenter, vCenter Data Center and compute resources for that resource manager.
  • Click a resource manager, desktop manager, vCenter, or compute resource in the left pane to display tabs of information specific to that resource in the right pane.

Once you have a resource manager associated with a data center, when you click the link for that resource manager in the Resource Managers panel, the Compute Resources and Desktop Managers tabs are displayed in the right panel.
