Monitor historical trends across a site

Sep 04, 2013

The Trends view accesses historical trend information for sessions, connection failures, machine failures, logon performance, and load evaluation for each site. To locate this information, from the Dashboard or Filters view, click Trends.

To change the default scope of each graph, apply a different filter to the data. See Filter data to troubleshoot failures for details about how to select parameters on this view.

View trends for sessions From the Sessions tab, select the Delivery Group and time period to view more detailed information about the concurrent session count.
View trends for connection failures From the Connection Failures tab, select the machine type, failure type, Delivery Group, and time period to view a graph containing more detailed information about the user connection failures across your site.
View trends for machine failures From the Desktop OS Machine Failures tab or Server OS Machines tab, select the failure type, Delivery Group, and time period to view a graph containing more detailed information about the machine failures across your site.
View trends for logon performance From the Logon Performance tab, select the Delivery Group and time period to view a graph containing more detailed information about the duration of user logon times across your site and whether the number of logons affects the performance. This view also shows the average duration of the logon phases, such as brokering duration, VM start time, and so on.

This data is specifically for user logons and does not include users trying to reconnect from disconnected sessions.

View trends for load evaluation From the Load Evaluator Index tab, view a graph containing more detailed information about the load that is distributed among Server OS machines. The filter options for this graph include the Delivery Group or Server OS machine in a Delivery Group, Server OS machine (available only if Server OS machine in a Delivery Group was selected), and range.
View network analysis data using HDX Insight The availability of this feature depends on your organization's license and your administrator permissions.

From the Network tab, monitor your network analysis, which provides a user, application, and desktop contextual view of the network. With this feature, Director provides advanced analytics of ICA traffic in your XenDesktop deployment.

The flag icons on the graph indicate significant events or actions for that specific time range. Hover the mouse over the flag and click to list events or actions.

Note: HDX connection logon data is not collected for VDAs earlier than 7. For earlier VDAs, the chart data is displayed as 0.
