Frank Ohlhorst, Enterprise IT Analyst & Consultant and Srinivas Ramanathan, CEO of eG Innovations
IT performance management isn’t about monitoring CPU, memory or disk space any more. One of the toughest application performance challenges for any IT administrator is when a user says "my application is slow". You have to be able to quickly determine what the real cause of the problem is - is it in the network, the database, the application, storage? The fact that applications are using multi-tier architectures and being deployed in cloud and virtualized infrastructures only adds to the challenge.
Join us for this webinar where Frank Ohlhorst, Enterprise IT Analyst & Consultant and Srinivas Ramanathan, CEO of eG Innovations, will discuss the best practices for troubleshooting and prevention so even before a user complains their application is slow, you can pinpoint exactly where the cause of a problem lies – ensuring quick resolution and a positive user experience.
Choosing the Best Approach for Monitoring Citrix User Experience: Should You Monitor from the Network, Server or Client?
A great user experience is key for the success of any Citrix application virtualization or desktop virtualization initiative. To ensure user satisfaction and productivity, Citrix administrators should monitor the user experience proactively, detect times when users are likely to be seeing slowness, pinpoint the cause of such issues and initiate corrective actions to quickly resolve issues, thereby ensuring user satisfaction and productivity.
A key question is where should the monitoring of the Citrix infrastructure be performed from - the network, the server infrastructure, or from the client?
In this webinar you will:
Learn about the different approaches to Citrix user experience monitoring, their benefits and shortcomings
Hear about a hybrid approach that provides the most cost-effective yet comprehensive monitoring for a Citrix server farm

A great user experience is key for the success of any application virtualization or desktop virtualization initiative. Slow logons, session disconnects and screen freezes are just some of the performance issues that might affect user experience when virtualizing environments.
With increased adoption of VDI (Virtual Desktop Infrastructures) projected in the next few years, users expect - and demand – that the performance of their virtual applications and desktops match, if not exceed, the performance of their physical applications and desktops. To ensure the success of such IT transformation initiatives, IT managers must be able to monitor and manage the user experience to ensure optimal user satisfaction and productivity.
Join us for this webinar where Bala Vaidhinathan, CTO of eG Innovations, will discuss how you can monitor and manage the experience of your Citrix users to guarantee Citrix virtualization success.
Citrix application infrastructures are very performance sensitive. A small problem anywhere in your infrastructure can quickly lead to frustrated users complaining to the help desk that “Citrix is slow” or "not working”. You then have to spend hours finding out where the real problem lies before you can resolve it and restore a positive user experience. Is it really a Citrix issue, or is the issue actually originating somewhere else in the infrastructure – i.e., the network, application, virtual platform, storage, etc.?
Join us for this webinar where Bala Vaidhinathan, CTO of eG Innovations, will discuss:
- how you can extend Microsoft System Center Operations Manager (SCOM) to monitor and manage Citrix infrastructures end to end,
- when a user complains that Citrix is slow, you can pinpoint exactly where the cause of the problem lies
Java application slowdowns are so frequent these days that they cost businesses twice as much as actual downtime. When slowness occurs, IT managers often do not have sufficient visibility and insight to quickly determine what caused, and how to resolve, the issue. Is it due to the network, the database, application code, virtualization or storage?
Join us for this webinar and Bala Vaidhinathan, CTO of eG Innovations, as they present a multi-dimensional approach to performance monitoring and diagnosis that is necessary for ensuring that your Java applications are performing effectively – ensuring quick resolution and a positive user experience.
Over the last decade, the Citrix portfolio of solutions has dramatically expanded to include Citrix XenApp, XenDesktop, XenServer, XenMobile, Sharefile and Workspace Cloud. In addition, Flexwork and telework, BYOD, mobile workspaces, PC refresh alternatives and remote partner access are now common user paradigms that are all supported by Citrix technologies.
To address this, environments need to be well architected but also well monitored and managed to identify and diagnose problems early on and prevent issues from escalating and impacting end users and business processes. Join us for this webinar where Doug Brown, founder of DABCC, and Srinivas Ramanathan, CEO of eG Innovations, discuss the results and implications of the 2nd-annual Citrix Performance Management Survey which was designed to explore the current state of Citrix performance management to help Citrix users better understand current challenges, technology choices and best practices in the Citrix community.
Citrix and Virtual Desktop infrastructures (VDI) are highly performance sensitive. Slow logons, session disconnects and screen freezes are just some of the performance issues that Citrix administrators have to deal with. To deliver the best user experience, administrators must be able to proactively detect and resolve performance issues, before they become business impacting. And when problems do occur, Citrix administrators must be able to quickly determine where the root-cause lies: Is it in the storage, hypervisor, network, delivery controller, provisioning servers, XenApp and/or XenDesktop VDAs, database, or StoreFront? Diverse back-end applications, remote network connections, client capabilities can also add to the challenge of desktop virtualization.

Performance management of Citrix technologies has always been a challenge. Determining if user complaints of Citrix logon slowness, session disconnects, screen freezes, etc. are caused by the Citrix stack or by one of the supporting tiers has often been a time consuming and knowledge intensive process. Virtualization of Citrix applications has only added to the challenge.
Join this webinar "A Deep Dive Into Comprehensive Citrix & VDI Monitoring with eG Enterprise" to learn how eG Innovations, one of the earliest Citrix-focused monitoring software vendors, has been adapting its eG Enterprise solution to keep pace with Citrix technology evolution.

93% of respondents to the 2016 Citrix Performance Survey see Citrix XenApp and XenDesktop as two of the most performance sensitive technologies in use in enterprise networks today. Slow logins, frequent session disconnects and slow screen refreshes are just some of common complaints that Citrix administrators have to deal with these days. Furthermore, often when a user complains that their desktop is slow or an application is slow to launch, the issue is not in the Citrix tiers – but instead in the network, the virtualization platform, or storage tiers. End-to-end visibility, root-cause diagnosis and proactive alerting are therefore key requirements for Citrix administrators.
Join us for this webinar, ‘Choosing a Citrix Monitoring Strategy: Key Capabilities and Pitfalls to Avoid‘, where Citrix Certified Expert Rob Beekmans, Senior Consultant with PQR, a Citrix Platinum Advisor, and Srinivas Ramanathan, CEO of eG Innovations, will discuss the key requirements of effective Citrix performance monitoring as well as common pitfalls you need to avoid.
