Citrix: Monitor Data for XenApp and XenDesktop in Citrix Cloud is Now Available through OData
The XenApp and XenDesktop environment on Citrix Cloud gathers a large amount of historical data in the Monitoring Database. Accessing this data through OData was not a part of Cloud Services until now. We have introduced a new OData API that enables XenApp and XenDesktop administrators to create their own queries based on this monitoring data to suit their requirements.
This API can be used to:
- Build custom analysis tools on historical trends for future planning.
- Create custom user interface on top of the data that the API provides.
