StoreFront Logon Status Test

Frequent login failures and inexplicable delays when accessing the Citrix StoreFront server can have an adverse impact on a user’s experience with Citrix StoreFront. To capture such failures/delays proactively and isolate their root-cause, administrators can use the StoreFront Logon Status test. At configured intervals, this test emulates a user logging into the Citrix StoreFront server. In the process, the test reveals whether/not a user is able to connect to the Citrix StoreFront server and also reports the time taken for logging in to the Citrix StoreFront server. This way, login failures and unusual slowness in logging in can be captured.

Target of the test : Citrix StoreFront Server

Agent deploying the test : An internal/remote agent

Outputs of the test : One set of results for the Citrix StoreFront server being monitored.

Measurements made by the test
Measurement Description Measurement Unit Interpretation

Login status

Indicates whether/not the user could connect to the Citrix StoreFront server.


The values that this measure can take and their corresponding numeric values are as follows:

Measure Value Numeric Value
Success 1
Failure 0


By default, this measure reports the Measure Values listed above to indicate the login state of the Citrix StoreFront server. The graph of this measure however, represents the same using numeric equivalents only. 

Time taken to login

Indicates the time taken to login to the Citrix StoreFront server.


A low value is desired for this measure. A high value or a consistent increase in the value of this measure is  a cause for concern, as it indicates login delays.
