CitraTest APM
End to End Response Time
Monitoring for Every Application
CitraTest APM
CitraTest APM is used to monitor applications hosted via Tarantella. CitraTest APM, when used for Tarantella monitoring, covers the need for monitoring application performance, application availability, response time and service level agreement enforcement.

CitraTest APM periodically executes synthetic transactions, taking response time measurements along the way. By automating the driving of an application just like a real user at the client end, CitraTest APM can ensure that all critical aspects of an application or service are available and working within limits and if not, generate a real time alert.

CitraTest APM utilizes a very advanced and proprietary image recognition system to replicate the actions of an actual user in terms of visually analyzing every aspect of the desktop. Just like a user, CitraTest APM does not need to "see" an image in exactly the same location each time. CitraTest APM will “look” at the entire desktop and when an image needs to be clicked, CitraTest APM simply moves the mouse from its current location to the desired image and issues the appropriate mouse action, just like an actual user would do. CitraTest APM also automates keystrokes in the same way that an actual user types on the keyboard. The simplicity of using just these 3 elements: desktop visualization, keyboard and mouse, is what gives CitraTest APM the unrivaled power and flexibility to operate with any application that is accessible from a PC.

Unlike most APM products, CitraTest APM is totally non-intrusive to the production environment. Absolutely no elements of CitraTest APM are installed on any application or database servers, thereby making CitraTest APM fully non-invasive and independent of the application environment, just like a real user.

Tarantella monitoring with CitraTest APM ensures that the administrator can check whether applications are available, responsive and healthy or not. It also troubleshoots for errors so that end users are not affected by them. Amongst all the available monitoring solutions, only CitraTest APM is an ideal monitoring tool that can actively undertake Tarantella monitoring and send out real time alerts for each and every application that is accessible from a PC. This monitoring system can also undertake Citrix monitoring, ICA monitoring, Cerner monitoring, XenServer monitoring, XenApp monitoring, Terminal Services monitoring, SAP monitoring and RDP Monitoring.

Aberdeen "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."
