Who Should Run Service Watch Desktop

Selecting end-user candidates to run Service Watch Desktop can vary depending on what you are trying to do. Trying to diagnose application performance for end-users in remote locations or mobile users is a good starting point for Service Watch:

  1. Mobile or Remote Users
    Service Watch is excellent for measuring the performance of cloud and custom applications from the end-user perspective, no matter where they are located. If you have end-users that telecommute or users that are on the go, invite them to install Service Watch extensions and configure it for their most critical Line of Business (LOB) apps.
  2. Branch Office Users
    If you have pro-users or administrators in branch offices, as well as knowledge workers that are dependent on apps like Office 365, SharePoint, OneDrive and more, then they are good candidates for installing Service Watch.
  3. Users That Complain of Slow Performance
    When you are troubleshooting slow performance or network problems for users, they can be great candidates for inviting to install the Service Watch extension and configuring domains for their critical sites and apps.
  4. Try It With IT or Network Administrators
    To get an early understanding of how Service Watch works, you should invite other IT personnel to set up the Service Watch extension for monitoring applications like Office 365, SharePoint, Service Now and more.

Service Watch Desktop Widgets

By deploying Service Watch Desktop, a dashboard will become available and provide you with visibility into the data collected. The Service Watch Desktop dashboard include three types of Widgets to make it easy to troubleshoot end users performance issues.

Service Watch Scorecard Widget

This scorecard widget is ideal for quick visualizations of specific metric for a single sensor or in aggregate across all sensors of a specific type. Choose and configure over a period of time to include in the tab.

Service Watch Scorecards are ideal for visualizing hardware performance trends for specific users machines, no matter where the user is located.

The scorecard color for the metric changes depending on the recent trend over the selected period of time.

  • Green if the trend is less than a 5% increase
  • Orange if the trend is between 5 and 10% increase
  • Red if the trend is a greater than 10% increase

Service Watch Grid Widget

The Service Watch Grid widget is a powerful widget for visualizing tables of requests filtered by domain or user. Choose from different metrics with full sorting capabilities and spark lines for trend visualization over different time periods such as daily, weekly, monthly and more.

The Service Watch Grid widget enables quickly assessing the end user’s machine’s resource utilization. They can be customized to reflect CPU, Memory, Disk, Wi-Fi, and more. Service Watch collects the data every 30 seconds from the endpoint while actively being used.

Desktop Experience Score – DXS

The DXS or Exoprise Device Experience Score is an indicator of the overall health and performance of a user’s machine. The purpose of the DXS is to encapsulate Memory, Disk, CPU, Wi-Fi, and other performance metrics of the machine and application experiences.

This DXS should be an estimate of an end-user’s experience via their machines. A higher score between 8 and 10 indicates a machine running well. Lower scores indicate slower performance and therefore poorer experience.
