Citrix Performance Monitoring – Quick Guide
Citrix Server is a virtualization solution that enables central hosting of applications and resources. There are multiple components in a Citrix virtualization infrastructure, but globally it is available in two main editions – XenApp and XenDesktop.
- Citrix XenApp – Enables seamless application delivery to all platforms by isolating applications from the underlying OS and streaming them to the target device where they are executed. Basically, the application user sends keystrokes and mouse clicks to the server and receives screenshot updates. There is no need for installation or configuration on client servers.
- Citrix XenDesktop – Enables publishing of complete virtual desktops from a hypervisor to remote client devices. That way every user gets his own instance of the desktop without sharing any resources with other users.
To put it simple, Citrix Servers deliver applications to Windows, Mac, and Linux desktops without any installation or application compatibility problems.
Why and how to monitor Citrix performance?
Well, first of all – poor Citrix performance can have a major impact on your business. How? Symptoms of poor Citrix performance are sudden session disconnections, slow logins, slow application startups, screen freezes, and general usage lag. That greatly affects user productivity, and even worse, symptoms can affect all users within a Citrix XenApp farm.
