Force user logoff

To better achieve cost savings, Autoscale allows you to force log off lingering sessions. It does so by allowing the administrator to send a custom notification to the users and a grace period after which the sessions are force logged off. This is done only for machines in the drain mode and not for all powered-on machines.

Autoscale multi-session OS - force user logoff

You have the following two options:

  • Force user logoffs during peak times. If selected, Autoscale logs off those users from their sessions during peak times when the specified time elapses.

  • Force user logoffs during off-peak times. If selected, Autoscale logs off those users from their sessions during off-peak times when the specified time elapses.

Important:

This feature is available only in the Autoscale user interface for multi-session app based delivery groups.
