Independent Comparison Review: Citrix EdgeSight vs Goliath Performance Monitor

After receiving quite a bit of feedback from my first post on replacing Citrix Edgesight with Goliath Performance Monitor (GPM), I have decided to create a feature-to-feature comparison between EdgeSight 5.x, Desktop Director/Insight, and Goliath Performance Monitor.

The following charts show a breakdown of features between Citrix EdgeSight products (not compatiblewith XenApp/XenDesktop 7.x and later), Citrix Desktop Director (see notes about specific version requirements) and Goliath Performance Monitor.

Goliath Technologies Goliath Technologies is the only end to end monitoring, troubleshooting, and remediation solution for Citrix that is truly proactive. There isn’t another product that provides the deep metrics and analysis necessary for organizations to get ahead of issues in the three key areas that most often cause pain for end users: logon initiation, logon duration and session performance. Goliath’s one product combines the ability to simulate logons, drill down into the 33 stages of the logon process, isolate each of the HDX/ICA channels by user, and alert in real time if a performance threshold is breached. This, coupled with historical reports and trending analysis makes the product critical to an IT organization responsible for delivering a seamless end user experience.
