B.14.1. The Application Session List Table

The Application Session List table shows details of application sessions for the SGD server.

The number of application sessions is indicated in brackets at the top of the table.

The Application Session List table includes the following information for each application session:

  • User Identity. A unique identifier for the user.

  • User Profile. A profile that defines configuration settings and the applications available to the user.

  • Secure Global Desktop Server. The name of the SGD server hosting the application session.

  • Application Server. The name of the application server hosting the application.

  • Application. The name of the application.

  • Start Time. When the application was started.

  • Status. Current state of the application, for example, whether the application is running or suspended.

You can use the Search options to search the Application Session List table. The number of results returned by a search is limited to 150, by default. When searching for a User Identity, User Profile, or Application Server, you can use the * wildcard in your search string. Typing a search string of name is equivalent to searching for *name* and returns any match of the search string. The Start Time search option enables you to search for application sessions that were started between a range of times that you specify. The format of each time specified is yyyy/mm/dd hh:mm:ss. Use one of the following formats to specify the range:

  • starttime - endtime

    For example, 2010/05/11 08:00:00 - 2010/05/11 17:00:00.

    Searches for application sessions that were started between the specified times.

  • starttime-

    For example, 20010/05/11 08:00:00-.

    Searches for application sessions that were started on or after the specified time.

  • -endtime

    For example, -2010/05/11 08:00:33.

    Searches for application sessions that were started before the specified time.

Shadowing an application session enables you and the user to interact with the application simultaneously. To shadow an application session, select the check box for the application session in the Application Session List table and click the Shadow button.

Note

In some countries, it is illegal to shadow a user without their knowledge. It is your responsibility to comply with the law.

Shadowing is not supported for character applications or suspended applications. A warning message is shown if you attempt to shadow either of these applications.
