What are Windows RDP users?
Windows users are individuals who have the ability to log in to Microsoft Windows servers either on the console or via remote RDP sessions. The state of these user sessions can be Active or Disconnected, depending on whether an RDP client is connected to the session.
This state is independent of the idle or locked state of a session and the user's enabled or locked state. Monitoring the status of Windows user sessions can provide valuable insights into server usage and help identify potential security issues.
How to monitor Windows RDP Users?
ServicePilot makes it easy to monitor Windows RDP Users requiring minimal configuration on the target device. A resource of the server-windows-users package then needs to be added via the ServicePilot web interface.
Statistics collected are: Per server monitored - per user, Windows session counts and idle activity is presented. This is also summarized per server.
The output of the console command is then passed back to ServicePilot and presented as indicators that can then have threshold policies applied.
