    Hello,

    I am in a middle of a test with the following cluster :

    • 1x RHEL8 – Enterprise Terminal Server 6.9.2
    • 2x RHEL8 – Terminal Node Server 6.9.2

    Performances are not really satisfying – in comparison of production cluster we run (RHEL6 NM5 Enterprise).

    RHEL8 does provide different Gnome session for user :

    • Gnome Standard (Wayland) → **DEFAULT**
    • Gnome Classic (Wayland)
    • Gnome Standard (X11)
    • Gnome Classic (X11)

    I figure Gnome Classic (X11) might offer better performance. But I need to run some tests, compare…

    Questions :

    1. How can I tell which one I am actually running in my virtual desktop session ?
    2. Is there a way to give user the possibility to choose which one he would like to start, when given the choice to create a new session on the cluster ? (e.g. on our NM5 cluster, user can choose between Gnome, KDE or custom session.  I would like here the user to choose among the 4 Gnome session types listed above.)

    Best regards.

    Wayland is not supported in the NoMachine virtual desktops, you can only use x11 desktops.

    At the moment there is no possibility to add more Desktop types to the list, there is Feature Request for this: https://www.nomachine.com/FR09L02833.

    However you can still create separate different .nxs connection file for the specific session type.

    Create first connection file to start Gnome 3D as default on RHEL8 choose New Desktop and then click “Create a new virtual desktop” and select option “Save this settings in a connection file”;

    Create second connection file to start Gnome Classic and then click “Create a new custom session”-> “Run the following command: env GNOME_SHELL_SESSION_MODE=classic /bin/dbus-launch –exit-with-session gnome-session –session gnome-classic” + important is to select options “Run the command in a virtual desktop” and “Save this settings in a connection file”
