Horizon DaaS Metering and Reporting #
Product Detection #
For setting up VMware Horizon DaaS usage collection, for every Horizon DaaS deployment (each unique Horizon DaaS Service Provider implementation), the provider needs to register it in the Usage Meter 188.8.131.52 web application.
To set up the Horizon Desktop as a Service usage collection, the provider selects Horizon Desktop as Service in the Usage Meter web application, adds a new entry, and then enters the Horizon DaaS appliance IP address or hostname, port, username, password, and active directory domain. Validation of the user credentials is performed, and if correct, the data collection starts. The Usage Meter collector connects to the Horizon DaaS Service Provider appliance and collects license data. Usage metrics are collected every 6 hours.
For every reporting period, Usage Meter collects the maximum number of Desktop VMs under management for VDI and the maximum number of sessions under management for RDSH.
