VDI Stack Monitoring with Goliath Performance Monitor

Quite often I run projects at existing VMware customers that are building a new Digital Workspace. And quite often, that Digital Workspace contains a VDI. Especially when a customer is already using VMware technology in their data center, vRealize Operations (vROps) is used to monitor the environment. Although vROps is a great solution, it’s not really sufficient to monitor the desktop side of things.
