Horizon 8 constantly monitors the health of the pod federation by checking the health of each pod and Connection Server instances in those pods. You can review the health of a pod federation in Horizon Console.
You can also review the health of a pod federation from the command line by using the vdmadmin command with the -H option. For information about vdmadmin syntax, see the Horizon 8 Administration document.
- Log in to the Horizon Console user interface for any Connection Server instance in the pod federation.
- In Horizon Console, select .
- In the System Health pane, click View and then click Remote Pods.
A green health icon indicates that the Connection Server instance is online and available for the Cloud Pod Architecture feature. A red health icon indicates that the Connection Server instance is offline or the Cloud Pod Architecture feature cannot connect to the Connection Server instance to confirm its availability.
