QVD Desktop Logins Test

Administrators can track user logins to virtual desktops with the help of the QVD Desktop Logins test. This test monitors user sessions to the virtual desktops on a target Server Node and reports the total count of the logins and logouts. This way, administrators can determine the load on the desktops and identify sessions that abruptly logged out from desktops.

Target of the test : A Quality Virtual Desktop Node

Agent deploying the test : A remote agent

Outputs of the test : One set of results for the QVD that is to be monitored.

Detailed Diagnosis

To make diagnosis more efficient and accurate, the eG Enterprise suite 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

Current sessions

Indicates the number of desktop user sessions that are currently active on the QVD Server Node.

Number

This measure is a good indicator of the load on the QVD Server Node.

New logins

Indicates the number of new desktop user logins to the QVD Server Node during the last measurement period.

Number

A consistent zero value could often indicate a connection issue.

The detailed diagnosis of this measure if enabled, lists the name of the desktop, the name of the user logged into the desktop and the logged in time of the user.

Percentage of new logins

Indicates the percentage of new desktop users who logged in to the QVD Server Node during the last measurement period.

Percent

 

Sessions logging out

Indicates the number of user sessions that logged out from the QVD Server Node.

Number

A sudden log out of all the sessions, indicates a problem situation which requires further investigation.

The detailed diagnosis of this measure if enabled, lists the DESKTOP NAME, USER NAME, LOGIN TIME and the DURATION (MINS).

The detailed diagnosis of the New logins measure (see Figure 1), lists the name of the desktop, the name of the user logged into the desktop and the logged in time of the user.
