User Profile Test

User profiles are the heart of the server-based computing environments. User profiles contain the configuration settings, which bring the user desktop alive. One of the major problems in a server-based computing environment is that the user's login process takes more time to open the user's desktop. This happens if the user profile size is huge. The User Profile test monitors the size of the Terminal server user profiles and raises an alarm if the profile size exceeds the profile quota size.

Target of the test : A 2X Terminal Server

Agent deploying the test : An internal agent

Outputs of the test : One set of results for the 2X Terminal Server monitored

Configurable parameters for the test
Parameter Description

Test period

How often should the test be executed


The host for which the test is to be configured


Refers to the port used by the Terminal server


Specify the profile quota size (in MB). The default value is 50 MB.


Provide a comma-separated list of users who need to be excluded from the analysis. By default, this parameter is set to All_Users, indicating that, by default, the test will not monitor the All_Users profile.


If this is set to true, then the profile sizes of only those users who are currently logged into the server will be monitored. If this is set to false, eG Enterprise will perform profile monitoring for all the users to the server.


Takes the file quota size (in KB). The default size is 10000 KB.

Detailed Diagnosis

To make diagnosis more efficient and accurate, the eG Enterprise embeds an optional detailed diagnostic capability. With this capability, the eG agents can be configured to run detailed, more elaborate tests as and when specific problems are detected. To enable the detailed diagnosis capability of this test for a particular server, choose the On option. To disable the capability, click on the Off option.

The option to selectively enabled/disable the detailed diagnosis capability will be available only if the following conditions are fulfilled:

  • The eG manager license should allow the detailed diagnosis capability
  • Both the normal and abnormal frequencies configured for the detailed diagnosis measures should not be 0.
Measurements made by the test
Measurement Description Measurement Unit Interpretation

Is user profile exceeding quota

Indicates whether the profile size exceeds the profile quota size by comparing the current profile size with the configured ProfileSizeLimit parameter.


If this measure shows 0, it indicates that the current profile size has not exceeded the quota size. The value 1 indicates that the current profile size has exceeded the quota size.

Current profile size

Indicates the current profile size.



Number of files in user’s profile

Indicates the number of files available in the user profile.



Large files in user’s profile

The number of files in the user profile, which exceed the allowable FileSizeLimit parameter.


The detailed diagnosis of this measure, if enabled, lists all the files that have exceeded the configured FileSizeLimit.
