The vRealize Operations for Horizon broker agent is a Windows service that runs on a Horizon Connection Server host. It collects Horizon inventory information and sends that information to the Horizon Adapter.

The broker agent runs on one Horizon Connection Server host in each Horizon pod in your environment. Each pod can contain only one broker agent.

You must configure the broker agent to collect events from the event database and send them to the Horizon Adapter. You can optionally configure the broker agent to monitor the desktop pools, application pools, App Volumes AppStacks, and Unified Access Gateway appliances in your Horizon environment.
