  • © eG Innovations, Inc | www.eginnovations.comThe User PerspectiveUserUserPerspective“I start my device,log on, andexpect the sameexperience I hadwith my physicaldesktopenvironment.”
  • © eG Innovations, Inc | www.eginnovations.comAre You Feeling Desktop Virtualisation Pain?• High cost of downtime• Slow applications• Poor user experienceUser Frustration& Low Productivity• Manual, complexand lengthy diagnosis• Requires many domain expertsRisingIT SupportCost & Complexity• Throwing hardware at problems• Oversized & inefficient environmentRisingInfrastructure Cost• Delayed deployment & rollout• Failed projects & initiativesDelays, CostOverruns, MissedObjectives
  • © eG Innovations, Inc | www.eginnovations.comWhat is Causing the Pain?VirtualizationPerformanceChallengesRising ITSupport CostRisingInfrastructureCostDelays,Cost Overruns& MissedObjectivesUser Frustration& Low ProductivityTraditional tools fail to address today’s performance challenges:too complex, too slow, too fragmented, too manual.
  • © eG Innovations, Inc | www.eginnovations.comRequirements For Delivering aHigh Quality Service (and Numbing the Pain) Rapid response when a user has a problem Reduce the time from problem to fix Minimise unplanned service outages Optimise current infrastructure usage Know when/where to add more capacity
  • © eG Innovations, Inc | www.eginnovations.comRapid Response To User ProblemsWhen The User Calls The Help Desk, eG helps thesupport team by showing: Where’s the user session– which virtual desktop?– Which XenApp server? What applications is the user running? Is the problem persistent/spike/recurring?
  • Thin/VDI Clients option to find the userKevin is user name being searched and we immediatelyget the details of the server the user had logged onSCREENSHOT – Simple username search to find which virtual desktop or XenApp server issupporting the user session(s)
  • Click on themagnifyingglass whichgives thedetailedinformation asin the belowscreenKevin is using java application which is consuminghigh CPUSCREENSHOT – Administrator can now easily see what applications the user is accessingwith just a single click
  • Graph givesinformationabout theresourcesused by Kevinand timeperiodSCREENSHOT – Administrator can also immediately see some recent history for the issueand compare this with other metrics over variable time periods
  • Click on theServer whichtakes you tothe layeredview of theCitrix XenAppserver.SCREENSHOT – Administrator can also access full performance details of the XenAppserver (or VDI host) to check if other users are also affected.
  • © eG Innovations, Inc | www.eginnovations.comReduce Time From Problem Report To FixeG Eliminates Bridge Calls & Finger Pointing By Showing the full service performance end-to-end Correlating performance events and automatingproblem root-cause analysis Prioritising alarms to separate cause from effect Showing what’s changed in the infrastructure?
  • SCREENSHOT – eG shows complete end-to-end service view with real-time status of allcomponents and prioritised alarm status.
  • Orders Tablespace has no free spaceSCREENSHOT – Drill down from Oracle DBS in service view shows what’s causing theproblem.
  • Oracle DBis in criticalstateFrom the alarms we can see thatthere is some configuration changedone recently on this database serverSCREENSHOT – eG’s Alarm Window has also indicated that there has been a recentconfiguration change on the Oracle DBS
  • From the above screen it is very clear that the ORDERStablespace size has been reducedSCREENSHOT – eG has not only identified the cause of the problem but has identified whyit occurred so that the fix is now obvious.
  • © eG Innovations, Inc | www.eginnovations.comMinimise Unplanned Service Outages(Prevention Is Better Than Cure)eG Proactively Warns Administrators BEFOREUsers Are Affected By: Applying flexible alarm policies Self-learning of normal infrastructure behaviour Identifying recurring minor issues
  • SCREENSHOT – Administrator can see details of the tests being used for any metric
  • SCREENSHOT – This shows what type of threshold (fixed or relative) is used, whatgenerates minor/major/critical alarms and the Policy itself
  • SCREENSHOT – For metrics that normally vary by time/day, eG learns normal behaviourand uses relative thresholds for alarms
  • SCREENSHOT – Administrator can check if this has been an isolated event or has beenoccurring on a regular basis
  • © eG Innovations, Inc | www.eginnovations.comOptimise Current Infrastructure The workload presented by user sessions &session patterns Distribution of user workload across serviceinfrastructure Resource usage and performancecomparisons across service componentseG Collects More Than Just Component PerformanceMetrics. It Shows:
  • SCREENSHOT – Detailed workload reports available for all user sessions (XenApp or VDI)showing resource consumption
  • SCREENSHOT – Reports show if the load is balanced equally across the infrastructure
  • SCREENSHOT – Detail to provided to understand if loadings are as expected
  • © eG Innovations, Inc | www.eginnovations.comKnow When/Where To Add CapacityCritical to Satisfy All StakeholderseG ensures you get the balance right - Too little investment = unhappy users Too much investment = unhappy CFO In the wrong place = unhappy users & CFO
  • SCREENSHOT – Report shows what additional load the VM Cluster can support, comparingCPU and Memory
  • SCREENSHOT – eG Forecast Reports will use historic trend data to project what resourceswill be needed in the future.
