Q: What is VDI and how does Galileo monitor it? Does Galileo monitor the VDI session activity?
A: Virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) is virtualization technology that hosts a desktop operating system on a centralized server in a data center. VDI is a variation on the client-server computing model, sometimes referred to as server-based computing. The term was coined by VMware. In order for Galileo to monitor it, we would install our typical VMware agent. Even though we can monitor the VDI using the VMware agent – we do not capture the VDI session activity. Each VDI session is a VM and we would not know that specific metric.
