VMware Fling - View Auditing Portal

Today VMware Labs released a new fling, the View Auditing Portal which is a new web portal that serves  as an extension to Horizon View Administrator.

View Auditing Portal features:

  • Show parent virtual machines of linked clone desktop pools and descendant snapshots in a tree view. The snapshots not in use by linked clone pools are marked in grey,  so that View administrator can remove the snapshots not in use.
  • Show statistics for operation systems and versions of View clients in different types of view styles.
  • Show virtual desktop connections by desktop pools,  and show virtual application connections by RDS (Remote Desktop Service) Farms.
