The event database stores information about events that occur in the View Connection Server host or group, View Agents, and the View Administrator, and notifies you of the number of events on the dashboard. You can examine the events in detail on the Events screen.

Note

Events are listed in the View Administrator interface for a limited time period. After this time, the events are only available in the historical database tables. You can use Microsoft SQL Server or Oracle database reporting tools to examine events in the database tables. For more information, see the VMware Horizon View Integration document.

In addition to monitoring events in View Administrator, you can generate View events in Syslog format so that the event data can be accessible to analytics software. See Generating View Event Log Messages in Syslog Format Using the ‑I Option and "Configure Event Logging for Syslog Servers" in the VMware Horizon View Installation document.

Create and configure the event database as described in the VMware Horizon View Installation document.

In View Administrator, select Monitoring > Events.
