Remote Desktop Services User Session Log Summary

The Remote Desktop Services User Session Log Summary report, or the Session Log MinMax Summary custom report, was created for a client who wanted to track activity for a remote user that connected to the RDS farm sorted by daily user reports.

Although SysKit Monitor, our remote user session report software, comes with a list of predefined reports, please note that you will not find the Remote Desktop Services User Session Log Summary custom report among your default SysKit Monitor reports. If you have a specific request, contact us with the details and wireframe of the report, and we will create a report which you can use in your environment.

The Remote Desktop Services User Session Log Summary report lists:

  • When a certain user connected to the remote desktop servers
  • First log-on and last log-off time for the remote users
  • Total time spent connected in a session
  • Time spent in active and idle session state
