RSA Sessions Test

By tracking the number of sessions to the RSA Authentication Manager, administrators can figure out the load on the appliance. If the appliance is overloaded with sessions, it may actually degrade the authentication request processing capability. In such situations, administrators may want to track the session utilization on the appliance to figure out the real cause of the overload condition. This is where the RSA Sessions test helps the administrators!

This test accurately reports the number of sessions that were currently active on the appliance. This way, this test alerts administrators to take remedial action before overload condition occurs.
