TS performance

Does anyone know how a disconnected session impacting the
performance on Terminal Server? For example, a user open
several applications on a remote Terminal server and
disconnect the session. The application and processes are
still open on the server while the session disconnected.
Do those applications and processes take the system
resources (CPU, RAM, etc.) consistently or the system is
going to take those resources back for something else
while the session is disconnected?

thanks,

David

Applications running in a disconnected session use no less system resources
than in an active session, because they are still running.

What about those applications are idle? For example, open
a IE and a Word document and then disconnected. The
processes for IE and Word are still running in background
even though they are idle? Which means are they still
taking resources from the system?

Thanks,

David

Your statement is correct. Disconnected sessions continue to use system
resources until the session is terminated. Most people terminate
disconnected sessions after a certain amount of time, i.e. 30 minutes.

I also reboot my Citrix Servers every night just in case something has used
up a bunch of resources that were (for whatever reason) not returned. This
is not require at all, as I've had terminal servers that I didn't need to
reboot any time other than to do security updates or software installs.
