Remote Desktop & VDI Performance Monitoring

Remote Desktops Services (RDS), Citrix Xenapp, VMware Horizon and other Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) technologies can be great for centralizing and securing application delivery but they can be slow and aggravate end-users too.

50% of VDI implementations fail due to poor end-user experience or cost overruns due to a lack of capacity management.

As organizations leverage more remote application delivery they must be responsible for the performance and end-user experience – care must be taken to ensure up-time and responsiveness.  Measuring traditional performance metrics at the server can be OK but to ensure fast VDI and RDS environments, architects must measure Remote Desktop Protocol session performance end-to-end.

Monitor, Load & Stress Test Your VDI Performance With CloudReady

Exoprise CloudReady® gives you the insight you need to monitor and manage availability for your RDS, XenApp, Horizon or other VDI environments.

  • Know about outages, latency, and slow application launch times BEFORE your end-users have a problem
  • Monitor end-to-end application response within a virtualized remote environment like RDS
  • Easily deploy CloudReady sensors to emulate many users and application workloads for capacity planning
  • Stress test your RDS, VDI environments prior to deployment — validate and predict performance before, during and after VDI and Remote Desktop Services installations

Reduce Time Spent On Troubleshooting

Proactive Monitoring

Know about problems before your users do. Perfmon counters are OK for the servers but you need to be notified of end-to-end problems before they affect your end-users.

Real-Time Alerts & Workflow

Get notified of errors, slow downs and emergencies in real-time with the automatically configured and calibrated alarms as you deploy.

Inside-Out, Outside In

Monitor from inside your firewall or outside on one of our Public Sites. All from easy wizard-driven interfaces.

Slow Remote Desktops? Lousy Launch Times? Application Hangs With VDI?

With the Exoprise CloudReady RDS/RDP monitoring solutions you can identify the conditions that lead to slow desktops and poor application response. Typically its the result of a insufficient network and/or capacity planning so you must continuously measure and correlate network changes with end-to-end VDI response.

Synthetic VDI/RDS Sessions For Planning & Outage Detection

When you make changes you need to have a consistent repeatable workload to test whether or not the changes you make – server, client, or network – have improved the situation or made it worse. The best way to do this is to have a consistent repeatable “workload” for your remote services. The Exoprise CloudReady RDP sensor makes it quick and easy to deploy a repeatable synthetic remote session with application launch. No scripting required, no complicated controllers to install.

  • Identify insufficient server or network capacity that can lead to slow desktops or server contention
  • Detect slow logon performance before your users do by continuously monitoring Remote Desktop sessions end-to-end.
  • Get proactive notifications of slow application launch times which could be due to the insufficent resources or network capacity.
  • Detect poor remote session response which is usually caused by high network latency, lack of bandwidth or non-optimized virtual desktop or server settings
  • Long term analysis of Login Duration, Connect Time, RDP Connection Quality and Login-to-launch times is readily available for service-level assurance reporting and measurements
