This dashboard shows the detailed information of each RDS host in the horizon environment including host health, session count, desktop count, application count, PCoIP related data, detailed session data of the host, and the user resource consumption on the selected host.


RDS hosts are specific to Horizon with View 6.1 and later environments.

The RDS Hosts widget is the master widget in the dashboard. It shows all the RDS hosts in your environment.

Tips for Using the Horizon RDS Host Details Dashboard

  • Use the RDS Host Indicator Metrics widget to view the values of important host metrics, including health, workload, total sessions, desktop sessions, application sessions and PCoIP latency, bandwidth, and packet loss.

  • Run actions in the RDS Host Processes & Users widget to obtain information about in-guest host processes and their resource usage, including CPU, memory, and IO use. The Get Host Processes, Get Host Services, and Get Host Users actions can help you determine which host processes, applications, and users are using the most resources.

  • The RDS Host Sessions widget shows the desktop and application sessions currently running on the selected host. Information about the collection state and status, health score, workload, session state, protocol, and latency for each session appears in sortable columns. You can click the Dashboard Navigation button to navigate to the View Remote Session Details dashboard.

  • Use the RDS Host Health and Events widget to see a time line of health and anomalies for the selected host. The time line is annotated with host-related events and alerts. Use the toolbar buttons to select the types of events and alerts to display.

  • Use the User Resource Consumption to see how many resources are used by each user in the selected RDS host. The data include information such as user name, pool name, cpu, disk, memory, and network.
