It looks like this software allows you to view and control a remote
computer, but it does not allow you to temporarily lock a group of
computers to keep students from using them when the teacher wants them
to be focused on something else. Is that correct?
I've found that monitoring a student's computer is something I do less
often with this type of software than locking or sharing desktops.

Try Vcon http://vncon.chronetal.co.uk/. It is a free open source
program that allows you to monitor multiple computers from one desktop.
It works with vnc which is also free. I love it as a tech person
because I will occasionally check in on the what the students are doing
in the lab. Or i can take over a computer from even a different school
and fix something simple. It allows for multiple groups to be set up,
so for proctor i have one for each lab.
Never had a problem with performance, just a little flicker while
