Monitor your WorkSpaces using CloudWatch metrics

WorkSpaces and Amazon CloudWatch are integrated, so you can gather and analyze performance metrics. You can monitor these metrics using the CloudWatch console, the CloudWatch command line interface, or programmatically using the CloudWatch API. CloudWatch also allows you to set alarms when you reach a specified threshold for a metric.

For more information about using CloudWatch and alarms, see the Amazon CloudWatch User Guide.

Prerequisites

To get CloudWatch metrics, enable access on port 443 on the AMAZON subset in the us-east-1 Region. For more information, see IP address and port requirements for WorkSpaces.

Relative Mouse Offset

Relative Mouse Offset

By default, during users’ streaming sessions, AppStream 2.0 transmits information about mouse movements to the streaming instance by using absolute coordinates and rendering the mouse movements locally. For graphics-intensive applications, such as computer-aided design (CAD)/computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) software or video games, mouse performance improves when relative mouse mode is enabled. Relative mouse mode uses relative coordinates, which represent how far the mouse moved since the last frame, rather than the absolute x-y coordinate values within a window or screen. When relative mouse mode is enabled, AppStream 2.0 renders the mouse movements remotely.

Users can enable this feature during their AppStream 2.0 streaming sessions by doing either of the following:

Pressing Ctrl+Shift+F8

Choosing Relative Mouse Position [Ctrl+Shift+F8] from the Settings menu on the AppStream 2.0 toolbar in the top left area of their streaming session window. This method works when they use classic mode or Desktop View.
