Back in 2021, we sent out a product survey seeking feedback on desired features (congratulations by the way to James W., the winner of the randomly drawn $150 Amazon Gift Card!). Based on that feedback, the biggest need identified was a comprehensive, top level dashboard displaying the health of your RDS deployment.
It was a major improvement, and that’s what we’re going to take a quick look at here.
Remote Desktop Commander v6+ also offers better integration with Remote Desktop Canary databases so you can see recent login durations and errors directly atop the dashboard. The health status of your Remote Desktop Gateway servers and Connection Brokers are also be displayed, in terms of whether or not those infrastructure services are running, their CPU and memory loads, connection statistics, database response times, etc.
Finally, you can see the general health of specific collections and host pools in your RDS and AVD deployments, in terms of things like CPU/Memory load, session counts, average sessions per host, latency, and user input delay.
Clicking on specific subitems in the dashboard in turn launches other dashboards and reports so you can quickly drill into areas of interest for a closer inspection.
So Many More Features . . .
Furthermore, Remote Desktop Commander v6+ offers additional reports related to Remote Desktop Gateways and Connection Brokers, such as connection statistics, reason for connection failures, connection broker database responsiveness, and other metrics.
