Password Authentications Test

When a user tries to login to access the virtual machines or published applications using their login credentials from the Citrix Receiver, the Citrix Credential Wallet Service of the Citrix Storefront server helps in authenticating the password entered by the user with the password that is already stored in the authentication store. Using the Password Authentications test, administrators can easily analyze the rate at which the user information is authenticated by the Citrix Wallet Service and the rate at which the user requests are retrieved and serviced to the users. Additionally, you can identify how well the user requests are deleted after being serviced by the Citrix Wallet service. This test is a perfect choice for monitoring the user authentication and the load on the virtualized environment!
