Session Log IDs

At the start of each PCoIP session, a unique session ID is generated by the PCoIP Client and passed to all connected PCoIP components (including the agent). Log messages generated by the agent are prefixed with this session ID, making it easy to identify All log messages generated during a single session, by any PCoIP component, will be prefixed with the same session log ID in RFC-4122 format:

yyyy-mm-ddThh:mm:ss.ffffffZ xxxxxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxxxx > …

For example:

2015-11-06T08:01:18.688879Z 4208fb66-e22a-11d1-a7d7-00a0c982c00d > …

Log messages that do not pertain to a specific session will show a string of zeroes in place of the session log ID number.

If a PCoIP component does not receive a session log ID from the PCoIP client, or receives an invalid value, it will generate a new session log ID and distribute it to the other components in the system.
