This is a work in progress dashboard created for monitoring the Azure Windows Virtual Desktop service. It is meant to collect data from Azure Monitor, Azure Log Analytics, and influxDB. It works best if you are deploying your WVD Instances in a Scale Set.

Required Setup

  • Grafana deployed with a functional connection to Azure Monitor and Azure Log Analytics data sources.
  • InfluxDB (for storing session count)
  • Diag Data Export setup for Azure WVD Service


  • Table log of active users in the time period specified. This is based on Log Analytic quereies.
  • Connection count per host pool based on Log Analytics generated by the WVD Service.
  • Current active user count by host pool (Generated by Powershell script below)
    • This should be run as a Azure Automation job in a playbook.
  • Template Panels that pull all currently available Azure Monitor statistics for the selected scale set.

WIP Features:

  • Modifying rds_session_monitor script to pull in more stats about current sessions, and creating associated panels.
  • Creating panel to show offline vs online instances in current scale set.
