Use the User Session Details dashboard to view detailed information about all types of sessions running in your Horizon environment.

Note:

RDS desktop sessions and application sessions are specific to Horizon with Horizon 6.1 and later and VMware Horizon 6 version 6.1 environments.

The Horizon Remote Sessions widget lists all of the VDI desktop sessions, RDS desktop sessions, and application sessions in your environment and is the master widget for the dashboard.

Tips for Using the Horizon User Session Details Dashboard

  • Use the Session Indicator Metrics widget to view the values of important session metrics, including session health, session workload, session logon time and PCoIP session latency, bandwidth, and packet loss.

  • Use the Session Logon Breakdown widget to view important logon metrics, profile load time, shell load time, and Interactive session time.

  • Run actions in the Session Processes widget to obtain information about in-guest desktop processes and their resource usage, including CPU, memory, and IO use. The Get Desktop Processes and Get Desktop Services actions can help you determine which desktop processes and applications are using the most resources. The Get Desktop/Client Traceroute action provides information about network distance and quality between the desktop and client.

  • Use the Session Health & Events widget to see a timeline of health and anomalies for the selected session. The timeline is annotated with session-related events and alerts.

  • Use the Users widget to all the active users(users that ever logged in to Horizon) in current Horizon environment across pod.

  • Use the Application Launched By User to find out the when was the selected application launched by which user in the selected time period.

  • Use the Session Related Objects widget to look at the related object of the selected session.
