EdgeSight 5.4 continues to enhance the power of knowing. Knowing what your end users are experiencing, knowing how your applications are performing on your XenApp and XenDesktop farms, and knowing how your infrastructure is affecting your end user’s experience. As product manager for EdgeSight, it’s exciting to bring new features to EdgeSight.

Core Capabilities

EdgeSight allows you to identify, investigate, and define a resolution for performance issues affecting one or more systems from a single user interface. You can use EdgeSight to display notifications of performance anomalies, display system performance metrics over time, display hardware and software changes on systems, and display how systems are using resources such as memory, CPU, and disk.

Allows support personnel to quickly identify the server accessed by a user and session and then display relevant performance information. Also, a wide range of network-related reports are available that provide information on ICA client traffic, ICA session latency, volume, delay, and round-trip time.  Helps pinpoint application problems (crashes, slowness) and identify and define whether the problem is a “Citrix problem” or a result of network problems such as network delay, high round trip times, or Web errors.

EdgeSight does more than just help you solve problems; it can also help you in planning and implementing improvements in your enterprise. With EdgeSight, you can perform capacity planning, rollout new applications, manage multiple versions of applications, and implement licensing and compliance policies.  Because it provides information on how you are utilizing your servers, applications, and license allowing customers to optimize capacity as needed.
