Title: Monitoring Virtual Desktops

Author: Gabe Knuth, Independent Industry Analyst

Availability: "Monitoring Virtual Desktops" whitepaper is available now as a free download.

Key Takeaways: When it comes to monitoring virtual desktops, there is no magic bullet, but there is a recipe for success. In this white paper, ExtraHop and BrianMadden.com offer up the six key ingredients for success:

  1. Don't wait to get a monitoring platform until you need one.
  2. Don't try to find one platform that can do everything.
  3. Out-of-band is just as important as in-band.
  4. You know about desktop virtualization, so find a monitoring platform that knows it, too.
  5. High-level isn't bad, but you still need to monitor all of the other layers.
  6. Pretty dashboards are great, but reporting is more important.
