What are RDP sessions?
Remote Desktop Protocol, often just called RDP, is a proprietary protocol developed by Microsoft in order to allow a user to create a session to connect to another Windows Server or computer with a network connection.
Previously named Terminal Services Client, the official Microsoft RDP client is called Remote Desktop Connection.
There are many other implementations of RDP servers or clients presenting the same features for other operating systems like Unix or OSX.
RDP sessions check monitoring
This package is designed to run a console command to capture information about the remote desktop sessions on a server.
It is configured to collect information about the number of active or inactive remote desktop sessions on a server.
The output of the console command is then passed back to ServicePilot and presented as indicators that can then have threshold policies applied.
