Manage Session Persistence and Performance

If you are running in domain mode, you can use Reflection X Advantage remote session services to provide both session persistence and improved performance on some networks. Remote session services are configured on a per session basis from X Manager for Domains or the Administrative Console. These settings determine when and where sessions are held in memory.

Notes:

  • The default Remote session services setting is None. To use any of the other remote session services, you must be connected to a domain with at least one domain node available.
  • When you exit X Manager for Domains, your currently running sessions may stop or they may continue to run as suspended sessions. What happens depends on your setting for Remote Session Services, your setting for On exiting X Manager, and whether or not you leave the session before you exit X Manager for Domains. For example, if Remote Session Services = Session/suspend resume, On exiting X Manager = Stop all sessions, and you exit X Manager for Domains with a session window still open, Reflection X Advantage automatically stops the session. If On exiting X Manager = Leave all sessions if possible and you exit X Manager for Domains with a session window still open, or with a session suspended, the session will continue to run as a suspended session.

To configure remote session services

  1. Start X Manager for Domains.

Select a session. On the General tab, under Remote session services, select one of the following settings:

 

None
(Default). With this option, your session runs on your workstation, and remains available as long as X Manager for Domains is running. The session ends when you close X Manager for Domains or your workstation shuts down.

 

Session suspend/resume
Use this option to be able to rejoin a session even after you close X Manager for Domains and shut down your workstation.

Note: With this configuration, your session does not persist if your workstation shuts down unexpectedly.

 

Session suspend/resume; High-latency network performance
Use this option to improve performance when you connect to an X client over a high-latency network (typically one in which your X Manager for Domains workstation is located far from the X client host computer).

Note: With this configuration, your session may not persist if your workstation shuts down unexpectedly.

 

Session suspend/resume; High-latency network performance; Network fault tolerance
Use this option to ensure that your session is guaranteed to remain running even in the event that your workstation shuts down unexpectedly. (This option also improves performance when you connect to an X client over a high-latency network.)

Use Stop suspended session after <n> minutes to shut down the session automatically if it has been suspended for the specified time without being rejoined. This setting applies if the session is suspended because of an unexpected shutdown and also if you suspend the session by selecting Leave in response to the Confirm Exit prompt. This option is not available when Remote Session Services is set to None.
