SIMPLIFY MONITORING: CITRIX XENAPP AND XENDESKTOP TROUBLESHOOTING OVERVIEW Presented By: XXX Tricerat, Inc All rights reserved.
“What was once a reactive process with many end user alerts is now a proactive process with Simplify Monitoring. We set performance thresholds on IMA service and print manager and we are now alerted to issues prior to receiving an end user alert from our customer.” - XenWinGo 2Tricerat, Inc All rights reserved. Identify XenApp and XenDesktop issues before end users. Execute remediation actions before end users are impacted. Eliminate end user complaints while ensuring a seamless experience.
The Sound of Pain “It’s taking too long for my application to start.” “There is a lag every time I type in a character or move my mouse.” “The application keeps getting stuck.” “There is a problem with one of my Servers or VMs; I’m not sure where it is and what it is.” “The end user has been working fine for the last week, and is suddenly experiencing performance issues. What’s changed?” “The network team is telling me latency is low and there is more than enough bandwidth, but I still have performance issues.” “I know XenApp and XenDesktop aren’t the issue but I have no proof.” Tricerat, Inc All rights reserved. 3
Challenges Finding Solutions There is a narrow view certain elements of the infrastructure. Correlation of application/user/server performance is difficult. Management across hypervisors is nonexistent. A full-time employee is required to manage and use. Programming/scripting is required to implement, monitor and alert. Feature parity across all versions of XenApp and XenDesktop. Setting performance thresholds and alerts is extremely challenging. Limited visibility into best practices to monitor XenApp and XenDesktop Tricerat, Inc All rights reserved. 4
