Data Store Check Test
When a Virtual Apps server farm is deployed, it must have an associated data store. The data store provides a repository of persistent information, including:
- Farm configuration information
- Published application configurations
- Server configurations
- Citrix administrator accounts
- Printer configurations
Servers in a farm query the data store for configuration information when attempting to come online. If the data store is unavailable or is inaccessible for long hours, servers in the farm will remain offline the whole time, thus denying users access to their critical applications. To avoid this, administrators can run the Data Store Check test at frequent intervals, check whether/not the server is able to connect to the data store, and in this way, detect connection failures before farm users complain. In the event of a connection failure, administrators can also use the detailed metrics collected by this test to determine the reason for the connection failure and resolve it.
Target of the test : Any Citrix server
Agent deploying the test : An internal/remote agent
Outputs of the test : One set of results for the Citrix server monitored
Indicates whether the server succeeded or failed in establishing a connection with the data store.
The values that this measure can take and their corresponding numeric values are as follows:
If the value reported is Failure, you can use the detailed diagnosis of this test to determine the reason for the connection failure.
By default, this measure reports the above-mentioned Measure Values to indicate the connectivity status of the data store. However, the graph of this measure will represent the same using the numeric equivalents only.
