Goliath Performance Monitor for Citrix

Anticipate, Troubleshoot, and Document Citrix Issues

Goliath Performance Monitor is the only comprehensive Citrix monitoring and troubleshooting solution that brings together Citrix monitoring data, end user experience performance metrics and the supporting IT elements that can impact end users experience when using Citrix. Comprehensive Citrix monitoring requires full visibility into everything the user does from the initial logon to working within their Citrix session and the IT infrastructure that supports this activity.

How to Monitor & Troubleshoot End User Experience on Citrix Workspace

Goliath will automatically integrate with your environment and build a dependency map of your Citrix infrastructure components – and ancillary database and Active Directory systems. Goliath’s intelligence engine assigns correlating monitoring for relevant failure points to each component, so you can monitor with a purpose.

Since this is all automatic, you can just sit back and watch – tweakin and tuning is your only responsibility. Then, pre-configured Citrix Monitoring rules are automatically applied and look for over 250 common failure points in the Citrix, Infrastructure, and Role Servers. Because of this embedded intelligence, you don’t have to be a Citrix expert to proactively anticipate, troubleshoot, resolve, and prevent performance issues in the most complex Citrix environments. Goliath’s purpose-built Citrix monitoring and troubleshooting software has the Citrix expert included!

Automatic Citrix Discovery and Dependency Map

The Automatic Citrix Discovery and Dependency Map intelligently creates a dependency map of your entire Citrix infrastructure with true end-to-end visibility of the health of your Citrix infrastructure. This single, macro view used as a real-time NOC display of your Citrix environment gives administrators the ability to monitor, manage and troubleshoot issues with Citrix whether the root cause is the Citrix infrastructure or the supporting IT elements. It shows the overall health of your environment at a glance and provides context-sensitive supporting metrics and details as you select each element. You can drill down and dynamically examine your environment, and troubleshoot issues more easily since everything is logically broken down. Read More.
