Language Authentications Test

In large virtualized environments, at any given point of time, thousands of users from different zones of the world may be trying to access the published applications and virtual desktops. In such a situation, language plays a major role when a user tries to login through the Citrix Receiver. Based on the language preference of the users, the Language Authentications test helps you to determine the rate at which the users are authenticated and how long it took for the Citrix Storefront to authenticate the users. In addition, this test helps you to identify the rate at which the change password requests have been entertained and the average time taken to change the password.
