The vRealize Operations for Horizon desktop agent runs on each remote desktop virtual machine, RDS host, or terminal server in your View environment. It collect metrics and performance data and send that data to the View adapter.

In Horizon View 5.2 and later and Horizon with View 6.0.x or VMware Horizon 6 version 6.1 environments, the desktop agent is installed as part of the View Agent installation.

If you have a View 5.0 or 5.1 environment, you must manually install the desktop agent on your desktops.
