Load management policy settings

Jun 13, 2017

The Load Management section contains policy settings for enabling and configuring load management between servers delivering Windows Server OS machines.

For information about calculating the load evaluator index, see CTX202150.

Concurrent logon tolerance

This setting specifies the maximum number of concurrent logons a server can accept.

By default, this is set to 2.

CPU usage

This setting specifies the level of CPU usage, as a percentage, at which the server reports a full load. When enabled, the default value at which the server reports a full load is 90%.

By default, this setting is disabled and CPU usage is excluded from load calculations.

CPU usage excluded process priority

This setting specifies the priority level at which a process' CPU usage is excluded from the CPU Usage load index.

By default, this is set to Below Normal or Low.

Disk usage

This setting specifies the disk queue length at which the server reports a 75% full load. When enabled, the default value for disk queue length is 8.

By default, this setting is disabled and disk usage is excluded from load calculations.

Maximum number of sessions

This setting specifies the maximum number of sessions a server can host. When enabled, the default setting for maximum number of sessions a server can host is 250.

By default, this setting is enabled.

Memory usage

This setting specifies the level of memory usage, as a percentage, at which the server reports a full load. When enabled, the default value at which the server reports a full load is 90%.

By default, this setting is disabled and memory usage is excluded from load calculations.

Memory usage base load

This setting specifies an approximation of the base operating system's memory usage and defines, in MB, the memory usage below which a server is considered to have zero load.

By default, this is set to 768 MB.
