XM Device Messages Test

In large corporate environments, it is not possible for the administrator to keep track of all the actions issued to the devices on the network. In a multiple administrator environment, it is even more difficult to track which administrator has issued an action to a particular device. Even if the action was completed, without an acknowledgement, administrators may not be able to identify the device on which the actions were completed and on the devices on which the action was still pending. To gain a better vision on the list of devices on which the actions were completed or the list of devices on which the actions were canceled after issue, you can use the XM Device Messages test.

For each device action issued by the administrator, this test returns the numerical statistics of the new messages and canceled messages that were received as acknowledgement.

Note:

This test will not report metrics for Citrix XenMobile 10.5, 10.6 and 10.7 versions.

DD Frequency

Refers to the frequency with which detailed diagnosis measures are to be generated for this test. The default is 1:1. This indicates that, by default, detailed measures will be generated every time this test runs, and also every time the test detects a problem. You can modify this frequency, if you so desire. Also, if you intend to disable the detailed diagnosis capability for this test, you can do so by specifying none against DD frequency.

Detailed Diagnosis

To make diagnosis more efficient and accurate, the eG Enterprise suite 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.
