This is a tool I’ve been using almost daily in my current project and for the past few months. Now It’s finally been released to the public! The tool has been created by Chuck Hirtsius — one of the EUC Specialist’s within VMware.
The release you see here today is the first release of the tool that provides log file visualization as well as real-time monitoring of the PCoIP WMI counters.
The PCoIP Log Viewer and the Log Parser can be downloaded from the following website: http://mindfluxinc.net/?p=195 Instructions on how to parse the logs ready for the Viewer should also be available on that link.
Now you have the tool, I guess you’d like to know how to make use of it? As I mentioned, I’ve been using it extensively to help me troubleshoot poor PCoIP performance. To help myself remember and to enable others to understand all of the PCoIP counters better I have put together a PCoIP Troubleshooting page. This should have all of the information you need to make the most out of this brilliant free tool.
