XM Connectivity Checks Test

For a XenMobile to function properly and send instructions to the devices in the mobile environment, administrators may need to continuously track the status of the connection established between XenMobile and various other servers/applications. To perform such checks at periodic intervals, you can use the XM Connectivity Checks test.

This test monitors the status of each connection to XenMobile in a XenMobile cluster and promptly alerts administrators whenever the connection is down.

Target of the test : A Citrix XenMobile

Agent deploying the test : A remote agent

Outputs of the test : One set of results for each cluster:connection to the target XenMobile server being monitored.

Configurable parameters for the test
Parameter Description

Detailed Diagnosis

To make diagnosis more efficient and accurate, the eG Enterprise embeds an optional detailed diagnostic capability. With this capability, the eG agents can be configured to run detailed, more elaborate tests as and when specific problems are detected. To enable the detailed diagnosis capability of this test for a particular server, choose the On option. To disable the capability, click on the Off option.

The option to selectively enable/disable the detailed diagnosis capability will be available only if the following conditions are fulfilled:

  • The eG manager license should allow the detailed diagnosis capability
  • Both the normal and abnormal frequencies configured for the detailed diagnosis measures should not be 0.
