Citrix: A 10,000 ft View of XenMobile Service Monitoring


Citrix’ rapid move to the cloud brings with it an accelerated adoption of practices and processes that are needed to support many of the cloud services that we provide. One of the many practices that is core to a cloud culture is automation, and alongside is monitoring. Both are intimately linked and mutually dependent — you can’t automate what you can’t monitor, and you can’t monitor without automation.

Having said that, it’s obvious how important monitoring is not just to automate the services we consume internally, but also to automate the infrastructure that powers our customer’s sites at scale and guarantee proper Service Level Agreements (SLAs).

As all of you know, central to Citrix’ mobility strategy is XenMobile, a fully functioning cloud service with many customers already enlisted. For us to be able to scale in the cloud and be proactive, we need an automated monitoring strategy that can alert us when a customer is having difficulties in real-time. In this post, we’ll take a 10,000 ft view of XenMobile’s cloud service monitoring strategy.

If you’re interested in the XM deployment architecture and how to sign up, please read Justin’s blog post. Our monitoring strategy is made up of a lot of moving pieces, a combination of open-source, homegrown, and third-party solutions to support customers of different tiers. In this post, I’ll be talking about a few of these tools.
