Load Balancing with XDMCP

When connecting with XDMCP, the remote hosts can be configured to display the amount of load on each system in a broadcast or multiquery screen.

On most modern systems this is configured by default as seen in the status of the Host browser.

However, certain systems simply display default information or a “Willing to manage” message.

In these cases, an Xwilling file is provided here to show the load.

Depending on your display the xdm.conf, gdm.conf, or kdmrc file will need to be edited to point to your Xwilling file.

In the [xdmcp] section

Add the line: Willing=/path/to/file/Xwilling
