Use the Horizon Infrastructure dashboard to quickly assess the underlying vSphere and Horizon infrastructure that supports your Horizon environment.

Horizon Infrastructure Hosts, Horizon VDI Desktop VMs, View Datastores, and View RDS Hosts are Heat Map widgets. These widgets show information about the health, workload, and connectivity of infrastructure hosts, remote desktops, and datastores, RDS (Microsoft Remote Desktop Services) hosts in your Horizon environment.

You can select an object in any widget and click the Dashboard Navigation button on the widget toolbar to navigate to vSphere dashboards. You can double-click an object to navigate to the object Summary tab in vRealize Operations Manager.


RDS hosts are specific to Horizon with View 6.0.x and VMware Horizon 6 version 6.1 and later environments.

Tips for Using the Horizon Infrastructure Dashboard

  • The colored rectangles in each widget represent particular objects. For example, in the Horizon VDI Desktop VMs widget, each rectangle represents a particular virtual machine. You can point to a rectangle to view basic information about its associated object.

  • The size of the rectangle indicates the value of one metric, the color of the rectangle indicates the value of another metric, and the widget configuration determines which metric values the widget shows. For example, if you select Sized by Workload - Colored by Health from the Configuration drop-down menu, rectangles are sized according to the value of the workload attribute and are colored according to the value of the health attribute. Red indicates a low value and green indicates the high end of the value range.
