IMA Service Health Test

This test queries the Citrix IMA service and figures out whether the Citrix IMA service is running properly by enumerating the number of applications that are deployed in this Citrix XenApp server.

Target of the test : Any Citrix server

Agent deploying the test : An internal agent

Outputs of the test : One set of results for every server being monitored

Configurable parameters for the test
  1. TEST PERIOD – How often should the test be executed
  2. Host – The host for which the test is to be configured
  3. Port – Refers to the port used by the Citrix server
  4. health monitor test path - Citrix XenApp is bundled with a Health Monitoring and Recovery (HMR) test pack, which provides a standard set of tests that can be configured to monitor the health of many XenApp components and report failures. Since the eG agent runs one of the HMR tests to determine the status of the Citrix IMA service, you need to configure the eG agent with the full path to the folder containing the HMR test pack. By default, the health monitor test path is set to default. This implies that the eG agent runs the HMR test from its default location, which is: C:\Progra~1\Citrix\HealthMon\Tests\Citrix. However, if the HMR test pack is available in a different location in your Citrix environment, then indicate that location in the health monitor test path text box. For instance, your specification can be: C:\LocalDir\Citrix\HealthMon\Tests\Citrix.
Measurements made by the test
Measurement Description Measurement Unit Interpretation

Status:

Indicates the current health status of the Citrix IMA service.

 

This measure reports the value Success if the Citrix IMA service is in good health, and reports the value Failure if the Citrix IMA service is not operating properly.

The numeric values that correspond to the above-mentioned states are as follows:

State Numeric Value

Success

0

Failure

1

Note:

By default, this measure reports the above-mentioned states while indicating whether the Citrix IMA service is in good health or not. However, the graph of this measure will represent success and failure using the numeric equivalents- i.e., 0 and 1 - only.

Number of applications:

Indicates the number of applications that were deployed in this Citrix XenApp server.
