Horizon best monitoring tool for login times?

Jump to solution
We have unacceptable 4+ minute login times with VDI that is preventing mass adoption. I heard vRealize with the Horizon management pack is being deprecated and replaced by ControlUp. Does anything have experience with using or comparing vRealize and ControlUp for the purpose of pinning down what's going on with the user login experience?

Controlup, liquidwarelabs strausphere,  and uberagent are the primary ones I beleive are used. Contact them and do proof of concepts and see which one you like. I've been using stratusphere for awhile and like it, but I have controlup in my lab and its pretty good as well.

I think he meant the vrealize adapter that came with horizon, which is not longer there, this requires you to all ready have vrops purchased.

Thanks Kenobi but vRealize with Horizon is being deprecated which is why I was wondering if anybody has used or compared the ControlUp software that VMware I guess partnered with. Plus, I can't even download the Horizon management pack anymore without a special request. Do you have a link?
