Citrix Logon Simulator: A Must-Have for Citrix Administrators
Slow logon is one of the most common complaints from Citrix users. Due to the multitude of steps involved and the inter-dependencies between various tiers in the logon process, logon slowness is a difficult problem for Citrix administrators to detect and resolve.
Citrix logon performance can be monitored in two ways:
- Passively, by observing real user logons and tracking the time taken to logon, as well as a breakdown of where time is being spent
- Actively, by simulating logons periodically to a Citrix farm, determining if logon succeeds and how long it takes
Both approaches complement each other and are needed for end-to-end monitoring of user logon issues. While real user logon monitoring is important to understand user experience in real time and troubleshoot problems, logon simulation is needed to benchmark logon performance and test its impact before real users are affected.
In this blog, we will discuss why logon simulation is a necessity for any Citrix farm and how to select the right logon simulator tool for the job.
What is a Citrix Logon Simulator?
A Citrix logon simulator is a tool that helps the administrator simulate a logon scenario using the exact same steps that a real user would take. A typical logon simulation includes:
