Virtualization: Operate


This pack requires some categories contained in the Shared Categories content pack, please make sure to have it installed in your environment before installing this pack.

Defining Excluded Applications

Configure Category Virtualization - Excluded Applications to list applications that will not be excluded from being reported on. This is prepopulated with a selection of common applications which would not normally be wanted. Any number of applications can be added or removed.

Defining Back End Systems

Configure Category Virtualization - Back End Systems to define destinations that the Virtual Infrastructure will be communicating with in your environment. This category can be individual systems or contain entire ranges as is wanted.

Defining SBC Servers

Configure Category Virtualization - SBC Server to define the Session Based Computing Servers in your environment, such as Citrix or Remote Desktop Services servers. This category should be assigned to all servers that have the collector installed and are SBC Server Systems.

Defining Different Virtualization Images

Configure Category Virtualization - Virtual Image to define the desktops that are running a particular VDI Image. This is then used for Image performance comparison within the Solution Pack. Rename the images according to needs in the category configuration.
For instance one keyword could be named "Windows 10 VDI". Then tag your virtual machines to the keywords you just created. Here is a link to the documentation on how to tag objects with Nexthink.

Defining VDI Network Physical / Virtual

We suggest you to adapt the network response time used in the VDI Network Physical / Virtual dashboard to measure your most important response time; for instance, the response time when connecting to a critical service in your company. To do this edit the metrics Virtualization - Operate - Average network response time on physical devices and Virtualization - Operate - Average network response time on virtual devices.
