About the Content Pack for Monitoring Citrix
The Content Pack for Monitoring Citrix provides a quick way to build ITSI services to monitor your Citrix virtual apps and desktop infrastructure. The content pack includes predefined saved searches paired with data from Citrix XenDesktop technical add-ons. Use this pairing to visualize your virtual apps and desktop environment end-to-end so you can quickly find problems and understand what "normal" is. Each service template comes with predefined key performance indicators (KPIs) that provide fast visibility into your critical systems.
Once you have visibility into your CVAD environment you can add other systems for improved enterprise-wide visibility.
