Login PI Charts & Alerts

From Login VSI Documentation
Jump to: navigation, search

This section gives you access to three different analytical charts: Login Times, Protocol Latency and Workload Actions. You can download the charts (in JPG, PDF, PNG or SVG formats), export them (as CSV, JSON or XLSX files), and print them, if required. To access this functionality, hover the mouse over the download arrow, located at the top right-hand side of either chart. You can also access the table of alerts that contains all the alerts that Login PI has generated.

To access the charts and alerts, hover the mouse cursor over Report in the top menu bar and select Charts & Alerts.

To define a time-frame for both the charts and alerts, simply click the Calendar icon Cal.png (located at the top of the left-hand sidebar). After opening the Calendar, please select the necessary date(s), then click the Apply button.

Table of Alerts

This section gives you access to all the alerts that Login PI has generated since its initial installation. The table provides a detailed description of what went wrong to help mitigate them from occurring again in the future. To quick-switch between the charts & alerts, click on the respective icons located in the middle of the left sidebar.

Login Times Chart

This chart is available in two different variations: Raw Data and Statistical Data. The Raw Data chart shows the actual login times for each executed session juxtaposed against the (auto) defined threshold line. Hovering over each data point reveals the login and threshold values, while the time-slider underneath the X-axis allows you to zoom in (and out). This chart only allows you to select a specific day, therefore, if you want to retrieve a range of dates please use the statistical version, which contains more pertinent information for large amounts of data.

Statistical Chart: Predictive Trends & Data Filtering

The Statistical chart offers greater granularity by showing how long it takes for each step of the login process to load within the chosen time-frame, i.e. Login, User Profile, Group Policy and Shell Start. Simply hover over the actual graphing to expose these granular metrics. Each metric has its own particular color, as shown in the legend above the chart itself, which you can drill-down to by clicking on the respective button(s) in the legend. If your system is running slowly, these metrics can help you understand what might need extra attention, as well as helping to isolate negative trends.

You can also gauge where your performance is heading with our easy-to-use predictive trend feature. To gain insights into future trends, click the Prediction button at the bottom of the screen, which will extend the trend-line up to one month into the future. To get a more accurate picture of these trends, the data filtering feature lets you remove any anomalies from the data sets, the extremely high or low measurements, which can impact the reliability of the trend results. To do this, click the Data Filter button located underneath the chart. This will open a new window where you can define both the minimum and maximum values (in seconds) allowed for this data set. Once defined, please click the Apply button.

Protocol Latency Chart

This chart shows the session protocol latency times juxtaposed against both threshold and trend lines. These latency times refer to the actual round-trip time (RTT) that the protocol takes to complete its journey from the launcher to the target machine and back again. These measurements provide a very good indicator in relation to system responsiveness, which can help you uncover what might be causing any UX screen lags. Hovering over the actual graphing reveals the latency and threshold values, while the time-slider underneath the X-axis allows you to zoom in (and out) on specific times of the day, week or month.

Workload Actions Chart

This chart is available in two different variations: Raw Data and Statistical Data. The Raw Data chart shows the specific workload action response times juxtaposed against the (auto) defined threshold line. Each workload action has its own particular color, as shown in the legend above the chart itself, which you can drill-down to by clicking on the respective action button(s) in the legend. Hovering over each data point reveals the response time and threshold value, while the time-slider underneath the X-axis allows you to zoom in (and out). This chart only allows you to select a specific day, therefore, if you want to retrieve a range of dates please use the statistical version, which contains more pertinent information for large amounts of data.

The Statistical chart chart offers greater insights into the executed workload actions by juxtaposing the metrics against both threshold and trend lines. You can also gauge where your performance is heading with our easy-to-use predictive trend feature. To gain insights into future trends, click the Prediction button at the bottom of the screen, which will extend the trend-line up to one month into the future.
