2X Applications Test

This test reports statistics pertaining to the different applications deployed on the Parallels RAS and their usage by its clients.

Target of the test : A Parallels RAS

Agent deploying the test : An internal agent

Outputs of the test : One set of results for each application

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 all here if you want to monitor all the applications that are executing on this server. To monitor only those applications that have been published on this server for use by clients, specify Published in this text box.


While monitoring Parallels RASs of v10.0 (and higher), this test will automatically discover the full path to the install directory of the server. This is why, this parameter is set to none by default. However, while monitoring older versions of the Parallels RAS (i.e., versions prior to v10.0), you will have to explicitly specify the full path to the install directory of the Parallels RAS in the Query2XPath text box.

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

Processes running

Number of instances of this application currently executing on the Parallels RAS.


This value indicates if too many or too few instances corresponding to an application are executing on the host. The detailed diagnosis of this measure, if enabled, displays the complete list of processes executing, the users executing them, and their individual resource utilization.

CPU usage

Percentage of CPU used by this application.


A very high value could indicate that the specified application is consuming excessive CPU resources.

Memory usage

This value represents the ratio of the resident set size of the memory utilized by the application to the physical memory of the host system, expressed as a percentage.


A sudden increase in memory utilization for an application may be indicative of memory leaks in the application.
