VMware Horizon 7: Configure vRealize Operations Manager

by Greg Shields

Once Horizon hits production, one of your biggest tasks is monitoring its behaviors. Learn how by integrating Horizon with vRealize Operations Manager.

What you'll learn

You may have noticed that this course is by far the shortest in our eight-course learning path on VMware Horizon. That is by no means to presume that vRealize Operations is the least important. Rather, monitoring a complex environment with dozens of moving parts is arguably your most-important task once Horizon's components are assembled and VMs get provisioned to users. That task is best left to another solution in vRealize Operations Manager or vROPS, which we assume here is already monitoring your hypervisors and vCenter Servers. In this course, you'll explore the discrete tasks in integrating that already-existing vRealize Operations infrastructure into the Horizon View components we've built so far. You'll install the necessary broker agent on your connection server, create a vRealize Operations for Horizon adapter, and you'll leave with a quick-and-dirty overview of the new dashboards and reports vROPS now offers to dig into your VDI environment's deepest behaviors.
