Login PI is Cloud Ready – Multi-Domain Enablement to Monitor Cloud-Hosted VDI
I am proud to let you know that version 1.0.4 of Login PI is now available for immediate download on our website. This is a significant update from version 1.0.3, released late last year.
Any Cloud, Anywhere
One of the major new features in this version is multi-domain enablement. Regardless of where and how you access your remote / virtual desktop environment, Login PI is now cloud ready.
With Login PI 1.0.4 it’s now possible to have your datacenter in Ireland, your Login PI Launcher in Tokyo and to monitor your branch office in Amsterdam.
Previous releases of Login PI required all components (Login PI Server, Launchers, and Target environment) to have TCP connectivity to the Login PI Server and database, as well as SMB access to the Login PI file share. This made it difficult to use Login PI to monitor the end user experience of cloud-based desktops that may not have connectivity to the Login PI server.
With this release, Launchers and Targets communicate using HTTP on ports 8080, 9090, and 9091 to access the Login PI server. The file share is removed and the target binaries are now downloaded over http at login time.
This opens up several new scenarios for using Login PI to monitor your virtualized desktop environment:
1. A cloud or hosted VDI / RDS environment being accessed from the corporate network can be monitored with Login PI installed on either the corporate network or the cloud.
2. Login PI Launchers can be hosted in the cloud, or outside the corporate network, and communicate with the Login PI server over just HTTP to launch jobs.
3. Hosting partners with multiple VDI / SBC environments can now monitor them all from a single Login PI installation.
Event Log Formatting
We’ve also improved the way data is formatted in the Windows Event Log entries created by Login PI. This makes it easier to integrate Login PI alerts and notifications with other operations and reporting consoles like System Center Operations Manager (SCOM) and Splunk.
The Login PI management console now displays better information about launcher authentication and jobs, making it easier to troubleshoot Launcher connectivity/activity issues.
Addressed issues where Launchers would eventually become unresponsive and stop executing jobs until restarted.
