Aternity Virtual Desktop Monitoring

Get Visibility into All Tiers of the Virtual Desktop

Enterprises insist on maintaining excellent application performance as they virtualize their applications with VDI to improve flexibility and reduce costs.  By monitoring the performance of any business transaction within any packaged or custom application, and correlating it with the key performance indicators of the underlying desktop virtualization, Aternity Virtual Desktop Monitoring enables IT to effectively plan VDI migrations, and to trouble shoot problems across all layers of the infrastructure.

The User Experience Dashboard provides a view of of device events and response time of business activities executed by virtual users, on any application

View device events and the response time, as seen by the virtual user, for all monitored business activities

View business activity response times and their compliance with thresholds

Display virtual end user experience trends, for any application and any device, relative to thresholds

The Device Type Comparison Dashboard compares the performance of business activities executed on physical and virtual desktops

See performance gain/loss of business activities, after migration to virtual, by department or location

Compare an application’s SLA compliance on physical and virtual devices

The Remote Display Dashboard shows remote display latency (ICA, PCoIP, RDP) experienced by virtual users

View latency experienced by end user and location, relative to SLA thresholds

Trend the Remote Display latency experienced by End Users over time

View latency by server or virtual desktop and by data center

Identify the top processes impacting the virtual device

Track resources that can impact virtual End Point performance

Use the “Time Machine” to view the device metrics when an issue occurred

See the process utilization for monitored Applications

View response times for business activities, and their compliance with SLA thresholds

Identify the performance of applications running on a virtual endpoint relative to SLA thresholds

Use the “Time Machine” to view Application metrics when an issue occurred.

Illuminating Four Primary Virtual Desktop Blind Spots

Aternity Virtual Desktop Monitoring closes the application performance visibility gap in Virtual Desktop environments by illuminating the four primary virtual desktop blind spots:

  • Application Execution Time: The actual time spent processing the transaction by the Virtual Desktop
  • Host Resource Availability: The ability of a Virtual Desktop to acquire sufficient host resources to optimally execute its tasks
  • Infrastructure Latency: Remote file share performance as well as the total Network and Server time spent until the Virtual Desktop receives a response from the application’s server-side components
  • Client-side Latency: The latency of the remote display protocol, responsible for painting the End Point device’s screen, as experienced by the user


Don’t Get Blamed for Poor Virtual App Performance

Unlike desktop virtualization monitoring tools that report process-level metrics only, like CPU, memory, and IO, Aternity Virtual Desktop Monitoring provides IT Ops with application and virtual desktop performance correlated with user productivity.  Armed with this data, IT Ops can rapidly investigate users’ complaints of poor app performance, determine other impacted users and the likely cause, and resolve the issue before workforce productivity is impacted.
