IDLE status in dashboard

In the Horizon console dashboard, it shows, Active, Disconnected and Idle. Anyone know how idle status is determined? Thanks

The time since user is inactive, is calculated as 'Idle' time and based on 'Idle Time Until Disconnect (VDI)', session gets disconnected after that.

I think the question was: after how many seconds of doing nothing is a session set as "idle"?

The default value is 900 secs (15min) before a session is marked as idle.

This can be changed using below reg. A value of -1 can be set to indicate that the session will never be considered idle.

Registry Hive HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE

Registry Path Software\Policies\VMware, Inc.\VMware VDM\Agent\Configuration\XMLAPI

Value Name userIdleTimeout

Value Type REG_SZ

Default Value 900

Thanks for the info. Is it possible to see which sessions are idle? I don't think I can click on the graph

You can see which sessions are idle or for how long with PowerCLI - this sample returns that data:

OK. Would be great if we can drill down to the idle users in the console.
