Overview of Host Pools AVD Settings
Nerdio Manager enables you to customize the host pool's AVD settings.
To configure host pool AVD settings:
At the Account level, navigate to AVD > Host Pools.
Locate the host pool you wish to work with.
From the action menu, select Properties > AVD.
Enter the following information:.
Friendly Name: Type the friendly name that is visible to the end users.
Description: Type the description that is visible to the administrators.
Note: Both the Friendly Name and Description can be changed at any time.
Load Balancing: Select the desired load balancing option.
Note: If auto-scaling is configured for this host pool, you must change the load balancing in the auto-scale settings.
The load balancing algorithm is used by the AVD Management Service to determine how to route a particular user’s desktop or RemoteApp connection.
Breadth First means that the load-balancing algorithm spreads the users evenly across all available session hosts.
Depth First means the load-balancing algorithm places all the users in the first session host until the host's session limit is reached. Only then, does it place the users in the next session host. If necessary, it powers on the VM and makes it available to the users.
Session Limit: Type the number of sessions that a single host in the host pool can accept.
Validation environment: Select this option designate this host pool as a validation host pool.
Note: Validation host pools receive service updates at a faster cadence than non-validation host pools, allowing you to test service changes before they are deployed broadly to production.
Start VM on connect: The VM is powered on automatically when the user connects. Any user can start the VM when they sign in. See Start VM on Connect for details.
Once you have entered all the desired information, select Save or Save & close.
