In Horizon 7 Administrator, you can monitor the active users who are concurrently connected to Horizon. The Product Licensing and Usage page displays the current and highest historical usage numbers. You can use these numbers to keep track of your product license usage. You can also reset the historical usage data and start over with the current data.

Horizon provides two licensing usage models, one for named users and one for concurrent users. Horizon counts the named users and concurrent users in your environment, regardless of your product license edition or usage model agreement.

For named users, Horizon counts the number of unique users that have accessed the Horizon environment. If a named user runs multiple single-user desktops, published desktops, and published applications, the user is counted once.

For named users, the Current column on the Product Licensing and Usage page displays the number of users since your Horizon deployment was first configured or since you last reset the Named Users Count. The Highest column is not applicable to named users.

For concurrent users, Horizon counts single-user desktop connections per session. If a concurrent user runs multiple single-user desktops, each connected desktop session is counted separately.

For concurrent users, published desktop and application connections are counted per user. If a concurrent user runs multiple published desktop sessions and applications, the user is counted only once, even if different published desktops or applications are hosted on different RDS hosts. If a concurrent user runs a single-user desktop and additional published desktops and applications, the user is counted only once.

For concurrent users, the Highest column on the Product Licensing and Usage page displays the highest number of concurrent desktop sessions and published desktop and application users since your Horizon deployment was first configured or since you last reset the Highest Count.

You can monitor the number of collaborative sessions and session collaborators connected to a session.

  • Active - collaboration sessions: the number of sessions where a session owner has invited one or more users to join a session. Example: John has invited two people to join his session and Mary has invited one person to join her session. The value of this row is 2, regardless of whether any of the invitees have joined the session.

  • Active - total collaborators: the total number of users that are connected to a collaborative session, including the session owner and any collaborators. Example: John has invited two people and only one person has joined the session. Mary has invited one person who has not joined the session. The value of this row is 3: John's collaborative session has one primary and one secondary, while Mary's collaborative session has one primary and zero secondary. Because the session owner is counted, it is guaranteed that the total number of collaborators is always greater than or equal to the total number of collaborative sessions.
