Scripting: Automating the launch of HDX sessions through Citrix StoreFront (and NetScaler Gateway integrated with StoreFront)
At Citrix Solutions Lab, we are constantly pushing Citrix solutions to the limit as we test and scale various architectures. At many times this involves launching a great number of HDX sessions during our testing. To do this, we leverage Login Consultants’ Login VSI as an independent and industry standard session orchestrator for our tests.
Some time ago, Citrix Consulting Services published a white paper where they discussed how to use Login VSI with XenDesktop and utilize the useful custom commandline with CSV. This option allows you to use a comma separated values file to store the usernames and other information used for the test. They also provided an example script which we adopted for many of our tests which was written in Python. The whitepaper is here: Citrix XenDesktop with Login Consultants VSI.
