Session Metrics

Session Detail

uberAgent collects metrics like the session ID, connection state, protocol latency, and foreground application per user session.


  • Source type: uberAgent:Session:SessionDetail
  • Used in dashboards: Application Usage, Machine Uptime, SBC Sizing and Capacity Planning, Session 0, Session Info: Citrix, Session Info: VMware, User Session Overview, User Sessions, Single Application Performance, Single Machine Performance, Single User Performance, Analyze data over time
  • Enabled through configuration setting: SessionDetail
  • Related configuration settings: n/a
