The End User Experience Dashboard continually monitors vCPU/vRAM and vDisk to alert of infrastructure performance that could negatively impact user-session experience via a heat map layout.

Tips for Using the Horizon End User Experience Dashboard

  • The vCPU Experience widget shows the vCPU performance of each VM or host in the Horizon environment as a heatmap. This heat map widget has several built-in configurations, including: VM CPU ready percentage, VM CPU demand percentage, VM CPU contention percentage, host CPU contention percentage, and host CPU usage percentage.

  • The vCPU Relationship widget shows objects related to the VM or host selected in the vCPU Experience widget.

  • The vCPU Ready% Chart widget shows the vCPU-ready percentage for the VM or host selected in the vCPU Experience widget.

  • The vDisk Experience widget shows the vDisk performance of each VM or datastore in the Horizon environment with a heatmap. This heatmap widget has several built-in configuration, including: VM Disk latency, VM Disk latency by IOPS, and datastore latency.

  • The vDisk Relationship widget shows objects related to the VM or datastore selected in the vDisk Experience widget.

  • The vDisk Latency chart shows the total latency of all instances of the VM or datastore selected in the vDisk Experience widget.

  • The Active Session Alert widget shows all alerts for current Horizon active sessions.

  • The Pool Critical Alerts widget shows the number of critical alerts for all VDI desktop pools. You can customize the color thresholds (i.e., the color for each number of critical alerts for each pool). The default thresholds are:

    • Yellow: 1 - 9 alerts

    • Orange: 10 - 15 alerts

    • Red: 15 or more alerts

  • The Session Experience widget shows the PCoIP and blast performance of each VDI desktop session in the Horizon environment with a heatmap. This heatmap widget has several built-in configurations, including: session latency, session packet loss, session bandwidth, session latency by BW, and session total logon time.

  • The Session Relationship widget shows objects related to the VDI desktop session selected in the Session Experience widget.

  • The Session Chart widget shows VDI desktop session data according to the selected configuration of the Session Experience widget.

  • The vRAM Experience widget shows the vRAM performance of each VM in Horizon environment with a heatmap. This heatmap widget has several built-in configurations, including VM memory swap and VM RAM usage percentage.

  • The vRAM Relationship widget shows the object related to the selected VM in the vRAM Experience widget.

  • The vRAM Chart widget shows VM data according to the selected configuration of the vRAM Experience widget.
