We have recently released an update for the Health Monitoring & Recovery SDK, and it is now available for download.

The popularity of the Health Monitoring & Recovery (HMR) feature, included with XenApp 4.5 Platinum and Enterprise editions, has greatly increased during the last few months among Citrix customers. This feature monitors the health of XenApp by periodically executing multiple tests and by starting a recovery action if any of those tests fails.

Citrix provides multiple HMR tests out-of-the-box for the administrators to configure, but customers and third parties can use this SDK to develop additional tests.

Some of the improvements in this update of the SDK include:

  • Improved error handling.
  • Support for additional test formats.
  • Additional sample tests.
  • Support for Windows Server 2008.

We are planning a future video blog regarding HMR in general and about the SDK in particular. So, stay tuned!

In the mean time, you can check the Citrix Presentation Server Administrator’s Guide or a prior posting about the feature for more information.
