PowerShell script to Monitor and Log Citrix ICA and ICA RTT Latency for a single user

by Stan Czerno August 14, 2021 13:55 CST
I had a Remote user complain that their Session was slow and unresponsive a few times in the last week. The user was connected to the Internet using Xfinity 5G so Latency was the first thing that I thought of. Her session was currently behaving, so I needed to log her latency to review when/if the issue occurred again. Since I do not run a Citrix ADM appliance, I wrote a script to record the user's latency to a CSV file so I could review it later. I ran it every morning for a week. [More]

Powershell Script to monitor Citrix XenApp and XenDesktop 7.x Health

by Stan Czerno October 11, 2019 10:07 CST
Like my previous script for monitoring a XenApp 6.5 Farm, this script is based on the scripts written by David Ott and Jason Poyner. I decided to add to these foundations and make it something that can be used throughout the day.

I created this as an easy way for Citrix Admins and others Admins and/or Users to get a quick look of the current XenDesktop and XenApp usage as well as the basic health of the XenApp Servers, Sessions, Latency, etc. I use it as an augment to Citrix Director. [More]
