XenApp/XenDesktop Platinum licensing provides not only product functionality, but also monitoring capabilities. Before researching and purchasing additional tools, let’s take a look at how to maximize your existing purchase by using the free add-on capabilities of Platinum.
The amount of time spent covering the free/embedded monitoring tools will depend on the most popular Citrix products and versions that the audience indicates are in use. We'll spend some time delving into EdgeSight, which provides extensive data monitoring for pre-XenApp/XenDesktop 7.x. While EdgeSight is a bit temperamental and quirky, some assistance in getting over the hurdles can yield extensive data that can provide a clear and unique picture of your environment. We’ll similarly explore Desktop Director, Scout, and other free tools from Citrix that can help you draw a clear picture of your environment.
In addition to exploring what these tools can do, we’ll spend some time discussing requirements that may drive you toward third-party products to address your needs.
In this session, you will learn:
• The free tools that are included with XenApp/XenDesktop licensing
• How to finally and realistically get EdgeSight functioning flawlessly so that you can quickly extrapolate specific data points when needed
• Other monitoring tools from Citrix that can assist with troubleshooting and data requirements
• Brief overview of third-party Citrix monitoring tools
