Citrix Monitoring

CitraTest APM

The key challenge in Citrix monitoring is to identify how any application responds at any point across the enterprise from the real user perspective. How do the end-users see applications perform from their client access points? Citrix monitoring is hence undertaken to know whether every location delivers similar performance.

Tevron’s CitraTest is an APM solution addressing the needs of Citrix monitoring, availability monitoring, Service Level Agreement enforcement and monitoring end to end response time across any organization. Citrix monitoring is based on the real user experience and nothing is installed on the Citrix application server. CitraTest APM can replicate every user transaction and execute it periodically from every client access point. All these real user measurements are then collected and analyzed. Through this process, application performance thresholds can be set and alerts generated when those thresholds are exceeded. Such an approach enables IT organizations to proactively and continuously manage every application across the enterprise, preventing system down time and saving time and money.

Benefits of using Tevron’s CitraTest APM for Citrix Monitoring

  • Distinctive Benefits

    Tevron’s CitraTest APM is a powerful solution for Citrix monitoring. Any activity a real user undertakes can be replicated to be used as a measuring stick. Because the production environment is not changed in any way and all measurements are taken from the client perspective, the benchmarks and application availability metrics are exactly what the real users see and experience. Such information can then be used to find and correct application performance issues before end users find them.

  • Open Architecture

    Tevron’s core monitoring technology has an open architecture which allows IT organizations to integrate this solution seamlessly into their current methodologies. All performance results can be shared with any application. In addition, it offers full support for MOM 2005.

  • Deployment and Ease of Use

    Deployment of Tevron’s CitraTest APM across the enterprise is easy and it allows one to actively monitor all enterprise applications. Any number of applications or locations can be monitored. This solution is easy to use and the user experience scripts are much simpler to create and deploy. All results are stored in a central database that is accessible via a Web based console. SLA reports based on application, location, and user type are automatically generated on a daily basis for IT Managers to analyze.

"Best-in-Class companies identified by Aberdeen surveys and interviews were found to be twice as likely as others to manage deployed services proactively. This demonstrates and underscores how solutions such as Tevron's CitraTest APM can help companies to maximize the business value of their IT investments by monitoring application performance proactively and comprehensively."
