DDC Farm Test

For every farm configured on a main delivery controller component, this test reports key statistics such as the number of DDCs managed by the farm and the number of desktop groups configured on each DDC.

Note:

This test will report all measures only if the server being monitored is the farm server – i.e., is the master server in the farm. If not, only the Is license server available measure will be reported. 

Target of the test : A Citrix Delivery Controller v3/4

Agent deploying the test : An internal agent

Outputs of the test : One set of results for farm configured on the main desktop delivery controller.

Detailed Diagnosis

To make diagnosis more efficient and accurate, the eG Enterprise suite embeds an optional detailed diagnostic capability. With this capability, the eG agents can be configured to run detailed, more elaborate tests as and when specific problems are detected. To enable the detailed diagnosis capability of this test for a particular server, choose the On option. To disable the capability, click on the Off option.

The option to selectively enable/disable the detailed diagnosis capability will be available only if the following conditions are fulfilled:

  • The eG manager license should allow the detailed diagnosis capability
  • Both the normal and abnormal frequencies configured for the detailed diagnosis measures should not be 0.
Measurements made by the test
Measurement Description Measurement Unit Interpretation

Is license server available?

Indicates whether the license server is currently available or not.

Boolean

While the value 1 indicates that the license server is available, the value 0 indicates that it is not.
