WEM Server Connectivity Test

This test promptly alerts administrators to the sudden non-availability of the WEM server and the time taken by the WEM server to respond to connection requests from the target XenApp server. Using this test, administrators may be alerted to the poor responsiveness of the WEM server.

Target of the test : A Citrix XenApp server

Agent deploying the test : An internal/remote agent

Outputs of the test : One set of results for the Citrix XenApp server that is being monitored

Configurable parameters for the test
Parameters Description

Test Period

How often should the test be executed. By default, this is 5 minutes.


The host for which the test is to be configured.


Refers to the port used by the target Citrix XenApp server. By default, this is set to 1494.

Measurements made by the test
Measurement Description Measurement Unit Interpretation


Indicates the availability of TCP connection from the XenApp server to the WEM server.


If the WEM server is available, a value of 100 is shown and if the WEM server is not available, a value of 0 is shown.

Response time

Indicates the time taken by the WEM server to respond to connection requests.


A low value is desired for this measure. A sudden or steady increase in this value could indicate a slowdown while connecting to the WEM server. This could be owing to a network congestion. Further investigation is however required to isolate the exact reason for the latency.
