Configurable parameters for the test
Parameters Description

Test Period

How often should the test be executed.


The host for which the test is to be configured.


The default port is NULL.

Report Using Manager Time

By default, this flag is set to Yes. This indicates that the user login time displayed in the detailed diagnosis page for this test will be based on the eG manager's time zone by default. Set this flag to No if you want the login times displayed in the  detailed diagnosis page for this test to be based on the target AVD's local time.

Report By Domain Name

By default, this flag is set to Yes. This implies that by default, the detailed diagnosis of this test will display the domainname\username of each user who logged into the chosen Session Host / Azure Virtual Desktop. This way, administrators will be able to quickly determine which user logged in from which domain. If you want the detailed diagnosis to display the username alone, then set this flag to No.

DD Frequency

Refers to the frequency with which detailed diagnosis measures are to be generated for this test. The default is 1:1. This indicates that, by default, detailed measures will be generated every time this test runs, and also every time the test detects a problem. You can modify this frequency, if you so desire. Also, if you intend to disable the detailed diagnosis capability for this test, you can do so by specifying none against DD Frequency.

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 enable/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

New logins

Indicates the number of new logins to the AVD in the last measurement period.


A consistent zero value could indicate a connection issue.

You can use the detailed diagnosis of this test to know which users logged in recently.

Percent new logins

Indicates the percentage of current sessions that logged in during the last measurement period.



Sessions logging out

Indicates the number of sessions that logged out.


If all the current sessions suddenly log out, it indicates a problem condition that requires investigation.

The detailed diagnosis of this measure lists the sessions that logged out.

Using the detailed diagnosis of the New logins measure, you can not only identify the users who logged in recently, but can also figure out when each user logged in.

With the help of the detailed diagnosis of the Sessions logging out measure, you can identify the users who logged out, when every user logged in, and the duration of each user’s session. Abnormally long sessions on the server can thus be identified.
