This template is a slightly modified copy of the template initially created by one of the IPHost Network Monitor users, to monitor Citrix Presentation Server 4.

Note that IPHost Tech Support Team doesn't provide technical support nor maintenance for this template. However, you may find it useful to monitor your instance of Citrix Presentation Server v4, or corresponding version of Citrix XenApp.

Feel free to modify or extend this template as needed for your purposes (change conditions, add more monitors).

For instance, you may add the following monitors:

  • Select CurrentUsage from Win32_PageFileUsage
2. WMI monitors for XenApp performance (selecting performance counters from Win32_PerfFormattedData_MetaFrameXP_CitrixMetaFramePresentationServer class).

3. WMI monitors for generic web interface performance (sample WQL queries):
  • Select RequestsQueued from Win32_PerfFormattedData_ASPNET_ASPNET
  • Select RequestsRejected from Win32_PerfFormattedData_ASPNET_ASPNET
4. WMI monitors for Citrix license services availability. Check that the following Windows services are in Running status:
  • Citrix Licensing
