Insights

Lets you gain insights into profile container and application behavior.


Optimization insights

This page includes two pie charts:

  • Top 10 applications by CPU optimization. Shows the top 10 applications that triggered CPU spike protection most frequently over the specified time period.
  • Top 10 applications by memory optimization. Shows the top 10 applications that triggered memory usage optimization most frequently over the specified time period.

To view insights, select a configuration set and a date range and then click Apply. Then, the pie charts refresh to display relevant insights.

Important:

  • For the charts to show data for a configuration set, you need to enable insights for it. To enable insights for a configuration set, go to its Advanced Settings > Insights page. The charts show insights based on the data collected previously.
  • Optimization insights data is not available until you enable CPU or memory management.

Usage insights

This page includes four pie charts:

  • Top 10 applications by usage time (hour)
  • Top 10 applications by number of users
  • Top 10 applications by CPU usage (%). Shows the top 10 applications that consumed the most CPU resources over the specified time period.
  • Top 10 applications by memory usage (MB). Shows the top 10 applications that consumed the most memory resources over the specified time period.

To view insights, select a configuration set and a date range and then click Apply. Then, the pie charts refresh to display relevant insights.

For the charts to show data for a configuration set, you need to enable insights for it. To enable insights for a configuration set, go to its Advanced Settings > Insights page. The charts show insights based on the data collected previously.


Profile container insights

This feature monitors profile containers for Profile Management and FSLogix. It provides insights into the basic usage data of the profile containers, the status of sessions using the profile containers, the issues detected, and more.

Use this feature to stay on top of space usage for profile containers and to identify problems that prevent profile containers from working.

Summary

This page includes two pie charts. You can click each segment of the chart to drill down for more details.

  • Space usage. The pie chart on the left side shows the space usage of profile containers over the specified time period. A numeric value represents the number of profile containers of that category.
  • Session Status. The pie chart on the right side shows results of attaching profile containers for sessions established over the specified time period. A numeric value represents the number of sessions of that category.

To view insights, select a configuration set and a date range and then click Apply. Then, the pie charts refresh to display relevant insights.

You can configure the following settings:

  • Space usage is high when used space is more than (GB). Lets you type a threshold value above which to treat the space usage of the profile containers as high. Type a positive integer.
  • Space usage is low when used space is less than (GB). Lets you type a threshold value below which to treat the space usage of the profile containers as low. Type a positive integer.

Note:

  • The high threshold value must be greater than the low threshold value.
  • After specifying the high and the low threshold values, click Refresh to trigger a refresh of the Used Space pie chart.
  • After specifying the high and the low threshold values, space usage in between defaults to Medium.

Profile container status

This page displays a list of status records for profile containers over a specified time period. To filter records, select a configuration set and a date range and then click Apply. If necessary, you can use filters to refine the results further.

You can perform the following actions:

  • Columns to display. Lets you customize the display of the table. When customizing columns, you must select at least two columns. After you complete your customization, the table refreshes to display the columns you select.

  • Refresh. Updates the list of status records.

  • Get latest status. Triggers the collection of data for the container the selected record pertains to. This option brings you up to date with the user’s container status.

    Note:

    If the container is in use, the agent attempts to collect relevant data. If successful, the latest status is updated in the container’s latest record. It might take a while for the update to complete. Click Refresh for the up-to-date record to appear.

The Attach status column displays information about status and error codes. For information about error codes, see the Microsoft documentation https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/fslogix/fslogix-error-codes-reference.

The Large file scan column provides information on the results of the large file scan. To enable large file scanning for a configuration set, go to its Advanced Settings > Insights page. To view details of the large file scan results for a record, click Results in the relevant column field. The large file scan wizard appears, presenting the results of the large file scan performed on the profile container. Files and folders smaller than 100 MB are not listed individually.
