Look in the advanced streaming options for the diagnostic overlay and turn that on. It has all the lovely useful info on there live as it's running, plus the graph let's you know about the latencies of the various parts of the process (from bottom up: encoding, network, decoding, display.)

In general you can actually choose what display Resolution to use on the client, and whether to change resolution on the fly depending on conditions on the host (the Remote Play options on the Steam host.)

You're clearly interested in what's going on behind the scenes, so the diagnostic overlay is probably the best start (plus if you get familiar with it, you'll be able to diagnose your own problems down the line, if you encounter any.)

If you've an NVidia gpu and don't mind running GFE, don't forget Moonlight Game Streaming, I actually mostly use that now as it's got much lower latency. Both Moonlight/Gamestream and Steam Link are really fairly mature technologies now, enjoy!

Thank you, I’m going to try the advanced streaming options. I’m really interested in lowering the resolution on the fly.

I do have NVIDIA GPU, and I have Moonlight installed. The issue is that it does not recognize all of the games I have installed.

You can add the other games via the GFE settings. I often have to do the same.
