CITRIX, what are you hiding?
-- Challenges of Troubleshooting Citrix Application Performance. Citrix offers significant benefits to IT organizations but alters the performance troubleshooting process due to its unique architecture. Citrix acts as a proxy for back-end applications, relaying information between the user and the back-end tiers that process user transactions It is difficult to relate user traffic on the front-end to proxied sessions on the back-end The lack of an end-to-end view of user transactions makes it difficult to identify and troubleshoot end-user experience problems By default, problems are typically blamed on the Citrix tier or ‘The Network’ CX-Tracer: End-to-End Performance Visibility in Citrix Environments CX-Tracer is a breakthrough solution that provides end-to-end visibility of user transactions traversing a Citrix server.
