    Article Summary

    New Data Pipeline

    This article covers this report as you see it from the new data pipeline. Some features described are visible only when viewing the new report format. For details, visit VDI and DaaS Reports.
    You can view On-Premises reports and Top Insights reports only in legacy format.

    The Session Activity report shows historical information about user sessions. Use the report to answer questions such as:

    • Which sessions had the highest CPU usage?

    • Which users had the slowest logon times during the past month?

    • What was the average application load time during a user session?

    • Which sessions did a certain user initiate yesterday?

    Insights Reports
    If you use Insights, the data is the same as what’s described here but we recommend you view reports in Solve or app.control.com.

    Grid Presets

    The report grid has presets to display different kinds of user session information. Select a preset at the top-right of the report grid. By default, the grid is sorted by logoff time in descending order.
