Goliath Application Availability Monitor for Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops

Citrix Ready Product Image / Logo

The Goliath Application Availability Monitor for XenApp and XenDesktop can alert and help you pinpoint root cause of Citrix XenApp applications not launching (or launching poorly), regardless of the location of the applications themselves or the end users. It can also do the same with desktops, whether delivered via XenApp or XenDesktop.

Product Details

The Goliath Application Availability Monitor (GAAM) is an early warning system that proactively alerts IT professionals of issues related to VDI failure or slowness before the end user ever notices an issue. We follow the same steps a user does to exercise and test the entire virtualized delivery infrastructure.  What’s more: we also provide evidence of exactly where and why the issues occurred, unlike other application performance monitoring software.

  1. Confirm that applications and the entire IT delivery infrastructure are available and working.
  2. Send alerts if they fail or are slow for troubleshooting.
  3. Provide screen captures & reports as objective evidence of success, slowness or failure so permanent fix actions can be put in place to prevent issues in the future.

The way we do this is unique because the software takes the same exact sequence of steps a user does when they logon and thereby exercises the entire IT delivery infrastructure to make sure it works together in concert when called upon to deliver an application.

This early warning system prevents end user experience issues resulting from:

  • Networks Not Available
  • Issues in the Desktop Virtualization Delivery Infrastructure

                   o Citrix: ICA, StoreFront, XenApp, XenDesktop, VDI Sessions

                   o Backend Systems: Active Directory, SQL, License Servers, Profile Servers

  • User or Group Permission Issues
  • Applications Not Enumerating
  • Application or Desktop Launch Failure
  • Slow Application Launch Time
