VMware HealthAnalyzer 5.3.1

I’m trying to re-collect some of the health check tools to validate the health of the VMware Infrastructure including SDN which is VMware HealthAnalyzer 5.3.1, VMware HealthAnalyzer automates the collection and analysis of VMware Horizon, VMware vSphere, and VMware NSX for vSphere inventory, including configuration and utilization data. VMware HealthAnalyzer Collector gathers View and vSphere inventory data from the systems in your environment. You can then export the data and send it to VMware or a VMware partner for analysis.


VMware HealthAnalyzer provides consistent, scalable data collection:

  • vSphere – Data can be collected from a specified VMware vCenter Server and other systems within the vSphere infrastructure.
  • Horizon – Data for analysis of desktop systems can be captured from a View Connection Server, App Volumes Manager and all of the systems with related data within the vSphere infrastructure.
  • NSX for vSphere – Data can be collected from VMware NSX Manager (standalone or Cross-vCenter Server setup) and VMware NSX Controller instances.

A project with data can be exported to a file, or a previously captured project with data can be imported. A report in Microsoft Word format can be created for review and delivery to a customer.

VMware HealthAnalyzer 5.3.1 includes the following changes

• Address Meltdown and Spectre vulnerabilities.
• Update JRE in OVA to 1.8.0_162.

Microsoft Word report

• Analyze vSphere SEC-024 best practice – Configure Encrypted vMotion if the organization policy requires it.
• Update severity based on threshold alerts for NSX-DLR-009 and NSX-ESG-010 best practices.

Export All Data output
• Remove best practices with grade “Not Applicable” and “No Data” from Export All Data output.

• A new extension “.vha” for exported projects.
• Recommend solution when an error occurs during collection/analysis stages.
• Warn user when multiple Primary NSX managers are involved in the same collection for NSX project.
• Reduce OVA size for both Collector and Full versions.
