Citrix XenApp 6.0 Presentation Server

Version 2

    Citrix XenApp 6.0 Presentation Server

    This template monitors critical events generated by Citrix XenApp 6.0 which may indicate possible service outages or configuration problems. Alerts are set to display the descriptions of events and the host name.

    Prerequisites: RPC access to the target server.

    Credentials: Windows Administrator on target server.

    Monitored Components

    Note: You need to set thresholds for counters according to your environment. It is recommended to monitor counters for some period of time to understand the potential value ranges and then set the thresholds accordingly. For more information, seehttp://knowledgebase.solarwinds.com/kb/questions/2415.

    Application Enumeration/sec

    This component monitor returns the number of non-XML-based enumerations (requests for application lists) per second.

    Application Resolution Time (ms)

    This component monitor measures the time required to resolve the Least-Loaded Server during an application in milliseconds.

    A baseline would be needed in order to establish increases during peak logon times before an accurate threshold can be defined.

    Application Resolutions Failed/sec

    This component monitor returns the number of application resolutions failed per second. This value should be zero at all times.

    Application Resolutions/sec

    This component monitor returns the number of resolutions (application launch requests) per second.

    This component monitor returns the number of minutes that have elapsed since the XenApp server has been disconnected from the data store. This value should be zero at all times.

    DataStore bytes read

    This component monitor returns the number of bytes read from the data store.

    This component monitor returns the number of bytes of data received in dynamic store query request packets.

    DynamicStore Query Response Bytes Sent

    This component monitor returns the number of bytes of data sent in response to dynamic store queries.

    DynamicStore reads/sec

    This component monitor returns the number of times data was read from the dynamic store per second.

    DynamicStore Update Bytes Received

    This component monitor returns the number of bytes of data received in dynamic store update packets.

    DynamicStore Update Packets Received

    This component monitor returns the number of update packets received by the dynamic store.

    DynamicStore Update Response Bytes Sent

    This component monitor returns the number of bytes of data sent in response to dynamic store update packets.

    DynamicStore writes/sec

    This component monitor returns the number of times data was written to the dynamic store per second.

    Filtered Application Enumerations/sec

    This component monitor returns the number of XML-based enumerations (requests for application lists) per second.

    LocalHostCache bytes read/sec

    This component monitor returns the number of bytes of IMA local host cache data read per second.

    LocalHostCache bytes written/sec

    This component monitor returns the number of bytes of IMA local host cache data written per second.

    LocalHostCache reads/sec

    This component monitor returns the number of times data was read from the IMA local host cache per second.

    LocalHostCache writes/sec

    This component monitor returns the number of times data was written to the IMA local host cache per second.

    Maximum number of XML threads

    This component monitor returns the maximum number of threads allocated to service Web-based sessions since the server last restarted.

    Number of busy XML threads

    This component monitor returns the number of XML requests that are currently being processed.

    This value should be less than 12. The maximum number of requests that the XML service can process at any one time is 16.

    Number of XML threads

    This component monitor returns the number of threads allocated to service web-based sessions.

    Resolution WorkItem Queue Executing Count

    This component monitor returns the number of work items (related to application launches) that are waiting to be processed by IMA.

    Resolution WorkItem Queue Ready Count

    This component monitor returns the number of resolution work items that are ready to be executed. This value should be zero at all times.

    WorkItem Queue Executing Count

    This component monitor returns the number of work items that are currently being executed.

    WorkItem Queue Pending Count

    This component monitor returns the number of work items that are not yet ready to be executed.

    WorkItem Queue Ready Count

    This component monitor returns the number of work items that are ready and waiting to be processed by IMA. This value should be zero at all times.

    Zone Elections

    This component monitor returns the number of zone elections that occurred. This value starts at zero each time the IMA service starts and is incremented each time a zone election takes place.

    Zone Elections Won

    This component monitor returns the number of times the server won a zone election.

    Number of Active Sessions

    This component monitor returns the number of currently active connections to the Citrix server.

    Number of Disconnected Sessions

    This component monitor returns the number of currently disconnected connections to the Citrix server.
