Measurements made by the test

Measurement Description Measurement Unit Interpretation

Farm availability:

Indicates the availability of the ZDC.

Percent

The availability is 100% when the server is responding to a request and 0% when it is not. Availability problems may be caused by a misconfiguration / malfunctioning of the server, or if the server has not been started.

Response time:

Indicates the time taken by the ZDC to respond to a user query

Secs

A sudden increase in response time is indicative of a bottleneck at the server.

Number of zones in the farm:

Indicates the number of zones in the farm.

Number

Use the detailed diagnosis of this measure to know the names of the zones.

Number of XenApp servers in the farm:

Indicates the number of XenApp servers in the farm.

Number

Use the detailed diagnosis of this measure to know the names and IP addresses of the servers in the farm and the zones to which the servers belong.
