The Remote Desktop Services Layer
In most environments, the Citrix Virtual Apps 7 (or above) server functions in conjunction with a RDS server. To enable the administrators of Virtual Desktop 7 environment to monitor the movement and resource usage of the RDS clients on the Citrix Virtual Apps server, the eG Enterprise has introduced the Remote Desktop Services layer. The tests mapped to this layer are the same as those mapped to the Remote Desktop Services layer of a Microsoft RDS server. These tests hence, have already been dealt with elaborately in the Monitoring Microsoft RDS Servers document. So, let us proceed to look at the The Citrix Server Layer layer.
