Bart Jacobs’ Toolbox: Monitoring Part 1

It’s been a while since I posted something. To make it up to you, this is part 1 of a 2-part series on monitoring. Part 2 will be following soon, I promise.

More specifically, monitoring XenApp with Powershell.

Since many of my customers are still running 6.5 (yeah, I know), I’m focussing on that version first.
And I know that lately, others have been releasing monitoring scripts and even entire frameworks.

Yet, I still wanted to put my work out there, not because I think my scripts are better, but to give you another option, or another source of inspiration.

In this first blog post, I’m presenting my XenApp dashboard script.  The script was based on the Farm Health Report by Jason Poyner, over at https://deptive.co.nz/xenapp-farm-health-report/. I reached out to Jason at one point, and he was ok for me to base my script on his script and even publish it. But he certainly deserves some credit too.

Basically, it comes down to this. The original script is a one-off, meaning, the script produces an outcome and that outcome is mailed or otherwise made available. But that’s it, once the output is there, the script is done.
