Overview

Cloud dashboards shows you an overview of the virtual machines that are running in a specific cloud infrastructure.

Details shown in a cloud dashboard include the following:

  1. Virtual machines running in the selected cloud, with the following details:
    • Name: the virtual machine name that you can use to identify it in your infrastructure.
    • Role: the role a VM fulfills in a workspace:
      • Broker: a VM that fulfills the role of a Remote Desktop Connection Broker (RD Connection Broker). This machine ensures the following operations:
        • Allows organization users to connect to App and Desktop session hosts.
        • Keeps track of active Remote Desktop sessions.
        • Ensures business continuity upon accidental or intentional session disconnection.
      • Active Directory: a VM running Windows Server with the Active Directory Domain Services installed. It manages active users and other machines joined in the domain.
      • App Session Host: a VM used to run remote apps, without offering the full desktop experience. When publishing a new application, this VM is rebuilt from scratch.
      • Desktop Session Host: a VM that offers a full desktop experience.
      • App Installation Host: a VM used to reconfigure templates for App and Desktop Session Hosts.
      • Network Drive Host: a VM used as network storage.
      • Windows Host: a VM that is part of the network, domain joined, but is not used for application publishing or desktop session publishing. Typically used as an LOB (Line Of Business) server, such as database or an application server.
      • Persistent Session Host: a VM that does not rebuild itself from scratch when publishing a new application.
    • IP address: the IP address assigned to the VM in the domain.
    • vCPU utilization level: a high level of vCPU usage for long periods of time may indicate the need for more resources. Consider provisioning more vCPU cores to the target VM.
    • vRAM utilization level: a high level of vRAM usage for long periods of time may indicate the need for more resources. Consider provisioning more RAM to the target VM.
    • Alerts: this section informs you of any actions that you may need to take for a specific VM.
