Session Status

How do I get to this dialog box?

From the Administrative Console

  1. Click the Domain Status tab.

  2. From the Running Sessions tab, select a session to display details about the session.

From the X Manager

  1. Under Session Definitions, find your session definiton. (Running sessions appear beneath the session definition.)

  2. Select a running session to display the Session Status pane on the right with details about the session.

Includes details about a selected running session. When viewing these statistics in the Administrative Console, you may see a double arrow button that allows you to move quickly to other details about the client connectors and X servers associated with the session.

Session Name The session definition name on which this session is based.
Location The computer that is running this session.
Owner The user who started the session.
State Session state—Starting, Stopping, Running, or Resetting.
Time in state The length of time since the session state last changed.
Uptime The amount of time that has elapsed since the session was started.
Trace file Visible only if you are tracing the session.

Session Sharing Settings

Connection URL (Standalone mode only) The URL that can be used by other Reflection X servers to join a shared session.
If you are the creator of the session, click Share to share the session and generate a connection URL. Send the connection URL to those who you want to join the session. When users start X Manager and go to Action > Join, they can join the shared session by providing the connection URL.
Share - Choose to generate a connection URL that other X Manager users can use to join this session.
Unshare - Choose to stop sharing the current session and disconnect external users that joined it.
Copy URL - Choose to copy the Connection URL to the clipboard so that it can be distributed to other users via email.
- This feature is available from the X Manager application, which operates Reflection X in Standalone mode. If you use the X Manager for Domains application, you are operating in Domain mode and this feature is not available.
- These options can be disabled from the General tab using Disable sharing.
- These options are not available if the running session is configured to use Remote Session Services.
Allowed Users (Domain mode only) All users allowed to join the session are listed here. If you are the creator of the session, you can click the plus sign (+) to add users. When allowed users start the X Manager and log onto the domain, they can join the session listed under Offered Sessions.
Note: This feature is available from X Manager for Domains and the Administrative Console—the applications that are used to operate Reflection X in Domain mode.
Allow users to take control of session If you are the creator of the session, while the session is running you can select this option to allow users to take control of a session they have joined.
In Standalone mode, this option applies to all users who join the session using the session's Connection URL.
In Domain mode, this option applies to all Allowed Users.

Client Connectors

The client connectors for a session accept incoming connection requests from X clients and forward X protocol requests received from the X client to the session.

Location The name of the computer on which the client connector is running.
Listening IP/Display The network address and display number of the X session to which the client connector belongs. A single client connector might have more than one listening IP/display pair if more than one network card is present. X clients locate an X session by this pair of values. This is done by setting the DISPLAY environment variable (or the X client command line option "-display") to:
<network address>:<display number>
X Client Count The number of X clients connected to this client connector.

X Servers

Shows details about the X servers connected to this session.

Location The computer on which this X server is running.
User The user running this X server.
Compression Shows whether protocol is compressed between this server and the session's protocol router. If protocol is compressed, or if this is a headless server, this column also displays additional statistics about the data exchange. For details, see Session Statistics.
Input Allowed Mouse and keyboard input. If user input is enabled for this X server, the status is Yes. Input is allowed from only one X server at a time.
Latency Displays the latency (in milliseconds) of the connection between the computer running this server and the computer running the session's protocol router. If the server is running locally, this column shows "N/A".
Note: Latency is the time delay between when an action is initiated and when its effect is detectable. In a network, a delay in the reception of data packets can be caused by several factors, such as the transmission medium, andthe number of network devices between the sending and receiving points.In general, the greater the physical distance between your workstation and your host, the greater the chance of encountering latency.
Bandwidth Displays the bandwidth of the connection between the computer running this server and the computer running the session's protocol router. If the server is running locally, this column shows "N/A".
Note: Bandwidth is the rate of transmission of data across the network; the maximum amountof information (Kbits/second or Mbits/second) that can be transmitted along a channel.
