This blog has been created to share technical information, interesting innovations that I notice on daily basis and Architectural/Consulting overview of various technologies. My areas of interest, on which I would be blogging, are VMware, Microsoft and Citrix Technologies. I hope you will enjoy this blog and share your experience with me.

VMware EUC - Horizon, UAG, VIDM and AppVolumes - NSX Load Balancing - Health Check Monitors

There is no single place to find a consolidated list of Load balancer health check monitors (aka Service Monitors in NSX) for the VMware EUC products:

I have been using VMware NSX load balancer across the board. The below details will provide an overview of what to enter for the health monitors. Note – If you are using something more meaningful  for your environment leave feedback in the comments section. I will try to implement the same and update the blog later.

VMware Unified Access Gateway (UAG)

Create a new Service Monitor under NSX and call is UAG_https_monitor. Refer to the screenshot for more details.
