Troubleshooting Slow Logons Caused by a Large User Profile on Citrix
Profile management is an important aspect of every Application or Desktop virtualization implementation. Regardless if you have a user profile management solution or if you manage your users’ profile locally, it is important to monitor and moderate the profile size and composition (total amount of files).
Monitoring the user profile size and its storage capacity utilization is important for obvious reasons. However the profile composition (i.e. the total amount of files that make up the user profile) is another important aspect that needs to be monitored since in many cases if a profile has an exaggerated amount of files it may affect logon times, primarily because it will take a long time to enumerate them all. This is especially if you have a third party user profile management solution like Citrix User Profile Manager.
Let’s take a look at a synthetic scenario where we are using Citrix User Profile Management and the user profile contains a lot of files.
