VMware View dashboard for 'problem desktops' (ET)

We are using vmware view and im am looking for a way to monitor if there are any problem desktops (as they're categorized  in view administrator). We are using Xangati monitoring however they do not offer this type of dashboard.
There are dashboards within view administrator however they're not ideal for displaying on a large monitoring screen.
Does anyone know of a product that can do this? Otherwise does vmware view have an API so i can custom build this?

I've no personal experience, but I did find some others who found creative ways to do this:
This guy did it with nagios

This guy did it by hitting mssql in vcenter server

With power cli you can use getviewstatus

The first one seems ideal but dont think its works anymore according to the comments people added. Also contacted Nagios sales but they didnt have any information relating to this.

Ill see what i can make of the next two however not really sure where to start in using the power CLI
