However, RDS monitoring systems work better when:
> They are sensitive to catching responses and gauging problems
> They create alerts at the relevant time
Why install RDS monitoring at all?
Small businesses have limited budgets. This can translate into reduced infrastructure as well as restricted manpower. Remote desktop protocol (RDP) thus works very well for small businesses, while reducing the need for heavy investment in dedicated IT systems and manpower. Remote desktop services monitoring enhances and helps optimize RDP by ensuring it is performing at its peak.
Delays in detecting problems can result in delayed resolution time, leading to loss in productivity and, more seriously, business.
Effective remote desktop services monitoring
An effective RDS monitoring system has certain characteristics that enable it to optimize the work of Remote Desktop Protocol systems, as well as applications running on RDP.
RDS monitoring can engage the RDP like a human user, thus effectively testing applications and their performance. Moreover, engaging applications like a human user includes replicating moves and keystrokes. This allows for inconsistencies to be caught, even if they are at various different stages of the application.
Regular monitoring is essential to ensure problems are detected before they grow into bigger issues. Regular monitoring also provides understanding of the normal or usual behavior of a particular application while highlighting any aberration or deviation.
Real time monitoring
Real time monitoring is a very effective way of nipping trouble at the root. In case of problems with your RDP, your RDS monitoring system should ideally generate real time alerts that allow you to grab the problem and resolve it before it affects your users' systems.
An effective RDS monitoring system will replicate user behavior to access and test functioning of applications on the RDP effectively. Further, it should be independent and not make its presence known to the users. This in turn allows for increased efficacy as well.
Utilized effectively, an RDS monitoring system can save up immensely on cost and time - both of which are ingredients essential to the success of the small business.
