Proactive Citrix XenApp and XenDesktop Performance Monitoring

with Server & Application Monitor


Fully functional for 30 days

Performance issues in your Citrix environment can lead to business downtime and IT challenges

Poor application response time

Slow application responsiveness leads to slow logins and launches, screen freezes, keystroke lags, session disconnects, etc.

Failed client connections

Every failed client connection is a problem to fix for the IT admin, and service disruption to the end-user and business.

Root cause is difficult to find

Citrix® deployment includes multiple interdependent tiers. This makes pinpointing the source of performance issues challenging.

Keep your Citrix XenApp and XenDesktop environment running at peak performance

  1. Proactively monitor your Citrix farm

    SolarWinds Server & Application Monitor includes out-of-the-box templates to monitor Citrix XenApp performance counters for core WMI, ICA session, presentation server and services from one dashboard.
      Some of the built-in performance metrics include:
    • CPU entitlement/reservation/shares/usage
    • IMA network traffic sent/received, and active connections
    • Secure Ticket Authority (STA) metrics
    • ICA session bandwidth metrics (input/output/latency)
    • Datastore read/writes and connection failures
    • DynamicStore read/write
    • Encryption ActiveSync service
    • End-user experience

  2. Get immediate alerts, and speed up troubleshooting

    Server & Application Monitor offers alerting for when a component in your Citrix infrastructure fails or experiences performance problems. Get alerted on slow sessions, intermittent session drops, inconsistent logins, and unavailable applications or desktops. The statistical threshold-based alerting feature monitors your Citrix infrastructure and dynamically calculates baseline performance. Set up alerts to notify you if warning or critical thresholds are reached. Eliminate false positives, simplify problem identification and accelerate troubleshooting.

  3. Analyze and correlate issues on dependent applications

    If your Citrix applications are in good health, but end-users still experience connectivity and performance issues, inspect the other applications that integrate with your Citrix farm.

      Server & Application Monitor:

    • Shows details about problems encountered at the operating system level (Windows, Linux®, etc.).
    • Monitors Web server response and processing time.
    • Checks for failures in the domain controller services and Active Directory functions.
    • Identifies problems with SQL Server® indexes, fragmentation, disk I/O, expensive queries and more.
