While Citrix Resource Manager was not perfect in earlier version of Citrix Presentation Server, many Citrix administrators are missing its functionality in the latest releases. From XenApp 5 for Windows 2008 Citrix removed Resource Manager and embedded its functionality in EdgeSight, their more advanced monitoring product. Although EdgeSight is a good product, it has a high learning curve and needs more configurations than Resource Manager. In large enterprises (where the default monitoring tools gives too much information) as well as in small companies (where Resource Manager was the only monitoring tool available), Resource Manager was used a lot. In both situations, EdgeSight is quite often not implemented because it needs additional hardware and software to be installed.

It is exactly this monitoring gap that Smart-X is aiming to fill with its product called ControlUp. Monitoring, however, is not the only feature the product offers. Much more functionality is available in the product, which fits perfectly in RDS/Citrix infrastructures, but can also be applied to any Windows server or VDI farm.

In this review we will take a look at some of Control-Up features.
