The Application Processes Layer

Using the tests mapped to this layer, you can do the following:

  • Capture key application and system error events that have occurred on the server;

  • Verify whether the processes critical to the functioning of the Citrix server are currently operational or not, and also monitor the CPU/memory usage of these processes;

  • Periodically check the availability of the Citrix server’s TCP port, the responsiveness of the port to client requests, and also the availability of ICA connection to the port.

The section that follows will discuss the HDX Port Connection test alone, as all other tests mapped to this layer have already been discussed in the Monitoring Unix and Windows Servers document.
