ControlUp provides early detection of performance issues through Citrix performance monitoring tools and enables admins to optimize and remediate their end-user’s experience with Citrix troubleshooting tools.
Troubleshooting Citrix Performance Monitoring Issues

With ControlUp, Citrix administrators can quickly spot performance issues across multiple layers—from hypervisors and datastores to Citrix ADC appliances, delivery brokers, VMs and VDAs—all the way to specific user sessions and processes.

Using real-time data collected by Citrix performance monitoring tools, IT Operations teams can quickly detect and remedy the root cause of an issue directly from the console with Citrix troubleshooting tools.

Citrix End User Experience Monitoring

Excessive logon or application launch times, high-protocol latency, and bandwidth limitations can all negatively affect Citrix end user experience monitoring and must be resolved quickly to maintain a frictionless and productive work environment.

ControlUp provides early detection of issues that could impact the end user experience with Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops, allows you to quickly identify the root cause of these issues and perform Citrix troubleshooting and remediation.

Citrix Virtual Apps Troubleshooting

ControlUp presents aggregated, logical views of complex environments and provides powerful Citrix troubleshooting tools for precise and rapid interventions when action is needed. For example, administrators can compare the Windows configurations of a working and non-working server to quickly isolate the element causing an application to fail. This includes the Windows registry, file system, services, and installed programs and updates.

Managing Multiple Citrix Virtual Apps & Desktops Farms and Versions

Neither AppCenter, EdgeSight, Studio, nor Citrix Director were designed to support multiple Citrix Virtual Apps & Desktops(formerly XenApp or XenDesktop) —a major management challenge for administrators dealing with the complex realities of an enterprise IT environment.

ControlUp monitors and troubleshoots all Citrix Virtual Apps & Desktops versions, enabling a streamlined management experience regardless of the server farm or edition.

Supporting End Users

In addition to basic user actions such as ‘Logoff’ and ‘Send Message’, ControlUp includes a rich array of contextual management actions that enable efficient application troubleshooting of user-related issues. For example, the ‘Kill Policy’ user action temporarily removes Group Policy restrictions that lockdown an end user’s desktop, providing a quick way to change settings and run commands inside a restricted user session.

Historical Reporting and Analytics

When an end user reports a performance issue from “last Tuesday”, a Citrix administrator must determine which server was used at the time in order to start the application troubleshooting process. Citrix administrators also need access to historical user session data to perform usage trend analysis, analyze license consumption, and report on Citrix logons and application usage for security purposes. ControlUp Insights seamlessly saves performance and usage data for Citrix Virtual Apps & Desktops, offering an extensive set of reports spanning areas such as user activity, Citrix end user experience monitoring, application activity, resource consumption (host, server and even process level), system health and licensing.
