グラフィックのポリシー設定

May 28, 2016

The Graphics section contains policy settings for controlling how images are handled in user sessions.

Display memory limit

This setting specifies the maximum video buffer size in kilobytes for the session.

By default, the display memory limit is 65536 kilobytes.

For connections requiring more color depth and higher resolution, increase the limit. Calculate the maximum memory required using the equation:

Memory depth in bytes = (color-depth-in-bits-per-pixel) / 8) * (vertical-resolution-in-pixels) * (horizontal-resolution-in-pixels).

For example, with a color depth of 32, vertical resolution of 600, and a horizontal resolution of 800, the maximum memory required is (32 / 8) * (600) * (800) = 1920000 bytes, which yields a display memory limit of 1920 KB.

Color depths other than 32-bit are available only if the Legacy graphics mode policy setting is enabled.

HDX allocates only the amount of display memory needed for each session. So, if only some users require more than the default, there is no negative impact on scalability by increasing the display memory limit.

Display mode degrade preference

Note: For the Virtual Delivery Agent 7.x, this policy setting applies only when the Legacy graphics mode policy setting is enabled.

This setting specifies whether color depth or resolution degrades first when the session display memory limit is reached.

By default, color depth is degraded first.

When the session memory limit is reached, you can reduce the quality of displayed images by choosing whether color depth or resolution is degraded first. When color depth is degraded first, displayed images use fewer colors. When resolution is degraded first, displayed images use fewer pixels per inch.

To notify users when either color depth or resolution are degraded, configure the Notify user when display mode is degraded setting.

Dynamic windows preview

This setting enables or disables the display of seamless windows in Flip, Flip 3D, Taskbar Preview, and Peek window preview modes.
Windows Aero preview option Description
Taskbar Preview When the user hovers over a window's taskbar icon, an image of that window appears above the taskbar.
Windows Peek When the user hovers over a taskbar preview image, a full-sized image of the window appears on the screen.
Flip When the user presses ALT+TAB, small preview icons are shown for each open window.
Flip 3D When the user presses TAB+Windows logo key, large images of the open windows cascade across the screen.

By default, this setting is enabled.

Image caching

Note: For the Virtual Delivery Agent 7.x, this policy setting applies only when the Legacy graphics mode policy setting is enabled.

This setting enables or disables the caching and retrieving of sections of images in sessions. Caching images in sections and retrieving these sections when needed makes scrolling smoother, reduces the amount of data transmitted over the network, and reduces the processing required on the user device.

By default, the image caching setting is enabled.

Note: The image caching setting controls how images are cached and retrieved; it does not control whether images are cached. Images are cached if the Legacy graphics mode setting is enabled.

Legacy graphics mode

This setting disables the rich graphics experience, providing fallback to the legacy graphics experience to improve scalability over a WAN or mobile connection.

By default, this setting is disabled and users are provided with the rich graphics experience.

Maximum allowed color depth

Note: For the Virtual Delivery Agent 7.x, this policy setting applies only when the Legacy graphics mode policy setting is enabled.

This setting specifies the maximum color depth allowed for a session.

By default, the maximum allowed color depth is 32 bits per pixel.

This setting applies only to ThinWire drivers and connections. It does not apply to VDAs that have a non-ThinWire driver as the primary display driver, such as VDAs that use a Windows Display Driver Model (WDDM) driver as the primary display driver. For Desktop OS VDAs using a WDDM driver as the primary display driver, such as Windows 8, this setting has no effect.  For Windows Server OS VDAs using a WDDM driver, such as Windows Server 2012 R2, this setting might prevent users from connecting to the VDA. 

Setting a high color depth requires more memory. To degrade color depth when the memory limit is reached, configure the Display mode degrade preference setting. When color depth is degraded, displayed images use fewer colors.

Notify user when display mode is degraded

Note: For the Virtual Delivery Agent 7.x, this policy setting applies only when the Legacy graphics mode policy setting is enabled.

This setting displays a brief explanation to the user when the color depth or resolution is degraded.

By default, notifying users is disabled.

Queuing and tossing

Note: For the Virtual Delivery Agent 7.x, this policy setting applies only when the Legacy graphics mode policy setting is enabled.

This setting discards queued images that are replaced by another image.

By default, queuing and tossing is enabled.

This improves response when graphics are sent to the user device. Configuring this setting can cause animations to become choppy because of dropped frames.
