The Remote Desktop Services Layer
In most environments, the Citrix XenApp 7 (or above) server functions in conjunction with a Terminal server. To enable the administrators of XenDesktop 7 environment to monitor the movement and resource usage of the Terminal clients on the Citrix XenApp server, the eG Enterprise system 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.
