VMware Horizon View Enable/Disable Teradici APEX PCoIP Offload Card Indicators

Here’s a good tip for testing your Teradici APEX PCoIP Offload cards to make sure they’re working properly in your VDI environment.

On your ESXi hosts, run the following commands to enable and disable an indicator that displays in the upper-left corner of your Virtual Desktops:

Enable indicator:

/opt/teradici/pcoip-ctrl -P “offload_indicator 1”

Disable indicator:

/opt/teradici/pcoip-ctrl -P “offload_indicator 0”

Red = PCoIP display is being offloaded

Blue = PCoIP not being offloaded

I found out about this when I stumbled upon the following VMAdmin UK blog post while researching how to properly configure the APEX cards. The blog has some other good information and tricks that are worth checking out if you’re interested.
