Quick — Name Superman’s greatest power.
Chances are, you didn’t say X-ray vision. But for Citrix super admins like you, complete visibility into your virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) may be your most valuable asset. If you’re going to administer your company’s implementation of Citrix XenApp and XenDesktop and do a good job, you’ll need to monitor pretty deep down into it. Without the tools that show you what’s going on in the three main areas of your Citrix VDI, you’ll be like Superman without X-ray vision: capable of doing great things but expected to do them in the dark.
Think about XenDesktop and XenApp performance monitoring in three places:
Only when there is enough capacity in all of these areas can your VDI handle the workload at an acceptable level of performance.
We’ve assembled all the layers and areas of Citrix VDI performance monitoring into a new white paper called “Becoming a Citrix Super Admin.” It provides a deep overview and broad checklist of things to look for all across your virtual environment. Read it to see whether your powers of X-ray vision and the tools you’re using are giving you the end-to-end monitoring you need to spot and diagnose problems in your Citrix VDI.
