    Horizon View 5.2 3d Hardware GPU Offload

      ** Quick Rant **

       

      I have to say I am terribly disappointed as to how View 5.2 has been released.  Nothing seems to be available for useful documentation and/or tutorials on what is available.  It seems as though half of the bits have been thrown up on the site for public consumption and the documentation that is available leads to no where

       

      ** End Rant **

       

      The documentation that is available for 3d says...

      http://pubs.vmware.com/view-52/index.jsp?topic=%2Fcom.vmware.view.integration.doc%2Fview_integration_preface.html

       

      To support hardware-based 3D rendering, a pool must meet these additional requirements:

       

      The desktops must run on ESXi 5.1 or later hosts and be managed by vCenter Server 5.1 or later software

      GPU graphics cards and the associated vSphere Installation Bundles (VIBs) must be installed on the ESXi hosts. For a list of supported GPU hardware, see the VMware Hardware Compatibility List at http://www.vmware.com/resources/compatibility/search.php.

       

       

      Where does one obtain said VIB for NVIDIA Quadro support?  After I install the VIB will 3d hardware magically work?  How does one know that a view session is actually using hardware vs software rendering.  Besides obviously testing an app and seeing improved performence is there a backend command or esxtop value that shows GPU usage?
