Troubleshoot Performance Issues
With ControlUp, Horizon administrators can quickly spot application performance issues across multiple layers — from the hypervisors and datastores to connection servers and VMs, all the way to specific user sessions and processes.
Using real-time performance data, ITOps teams can quickly detect AND remedy the root cause of an issue, using the one console.
End User Experience Monitoring
Excessive logon times, long applications launch times, high protocol latency or bandwidth limitations can all have a dramatic negative effect on Horizon user experience and must be resolved quickly to avoid frustration and lost productivity.
ControlUp provides early detection of these issues, and allows you to quickly dig deeper and find the root cause faster than any other way possible.
Regular maintenance tasks are required for minimal downtime. ControlUp offers a rich collection of powerful multi-target management actions and an extendable Script-Based Actions platform for rapid and effortless maintenance tasks.
Support End Users
In addition to basic user actions like ‘Logoff’ and ‘Send Message’, ControlUp gives VMware Horizon administrators access to a rich set of contextual management actions that enable proactive troubleshooting of end user related issues. One of our most popular actions with administrators is ‘Kill Policy,’ which temporarily removes Group Policy restrictions that lockdown the user’s desktop. When activated, it enables a quick way to change settings and run commands inside a restricted user session.
Manage Multiple VMware Horizon Deployments in One Console
Built-in management consoles were not built with supporting multiple deployments, which are useful for testing, staging, and production segregation. Supporting Horizon View 5.x and later, ControlUp’s all-inclusive dashboard provides a unified view of every virtual machine and user session in your environment and allows you to take action in the same console, uniting all your deployments in a single view.
Historical Reporting and Analytics
At some point, you’re going to need access to historical data about your VMware Horizon environment. As a VMware Horizon administrator, you may need historical user session reports, including usage trend analysis, license consumption, logons and application usage analysis.
ControlUp seamlessly aggregates data for historical analysis and offers a plethora of out-of-the-box reports including user activity, user experience, application activity, resource consumption (hosts, servers, and even processes data), system health and licensing.
