Goliath renames Citrix Logon simulator to App Availability testing
Earlier this year I wrote a couple of articles about the Goliath Citrix logon simulator, it enables the ability to test the availability of your Citrix infrastructure through simulating the logon with a user. Simulation sounds like the logon process is not really happening and that’s not true as with simulation a real user account is used to process the logon action. So they renamed it to Application availability testing. Application availability testing is understandable to everyone. It will test the availability of your Citrix environment on scheduled times.
If you are wondering what Goliath is offering with their logon simulation please read my previous articles here

So what is application availability testing, why woud you want to use it? Let me take you through a scenario that will make it clear.
Assume we have an airliner where employees travel the world and when the arrive at their destination they want to open an application on the corporate Citrix environment. This scenario is easily copied to any enterprise where employees travel the world, oil companies, truck drivers, shipping and so on. How can you be sure that the connection from the location they will connect from is functioning? Normal monitoring takes you to the boundaries of your network, the outskirts so to say where your control stops and where the Internet starts.
