Application View Reports and Metrics

The reports and metrics in this view are focussed on the XenApps.

To navigate to the Application view:

  1. Log on to your NetScaler MAS using a supported web browser.
  2. Navigate to Analytics > HDX Insight > Applications.

Summary View

The summary view displays the reports for all the applications that are logged in during the selected timeline.

All the below metrics/reports, unless explicitly mentioned will have the values corresponding to them for the select time period.

Line Chart

Metrics Description
# Sessions Total number of sessions during a given time interval.
Launch duration Average time taken to launch an application.

Active Application Report

Metrics Description
Name Name of the XenApp.
State Displays the state of the application: Green-Active, Red-Inactive

Threshold Report

The Threshold Report represent the count of thresholds breached where the entity is selected as Application in the selected period. For more information, see how to create thresholds and alerts.

Line Chart

Metrics Description
# Active Sessions This number indicates the count of active XenApp and XenDesktop sessions.
Launch duration Average time taken to launch an application.

Current Sessions Report

Metrics Description
Session ID A unique identity for an ICA session.
Session Type Application/Desktop.
State Green/Red for active/Inactive sessions.
Host Delay Average delay in ICA traffic that passes through the NetScaler ADCs caused by server network.
Bandwidth per Interval The bandwidth consumed by the session during that particular interval of time.
Session Bandwidth The bandwidth consumed by the session irrespective of the interval of time.
Bytes per Interval Number of bytes consumed by the session during that particular interval of time.
Start Time Session start time.
Up Time Session duration.
Client IP Address End user IP.
Server IP Address Backend/ XenApp server IP.
NetScaler IP Address NetScaler Management IP (NSIP).
Client Type Receiver type- Citrix Windows Client etc.
Client Version Receiver version.
MSI Boolean (Yes/No). Indicates if the session is multi-stream ICA.
Session Reconnects Number of times the session reconnected.
ACR Counts Total number of times a client automatically reconnects users to disconnected sessions.
User Access Type Displays the mode of access of the ICA session. For example, NetScaler Gateway user/transparent mode.
Country Country from which the session was established.
Region Region from which the session was established.
City City from which the session was established.
USB Status Active/Inactive -Green/Red.
Number of USB Instances Accepted The count of USB instances accepted.
Number of USB Instances Rejected The count of USB instances rejected.
Number of USB Instances Stopped The count of USB instances stopped.
Client Host Name The host name of the client.
HA Failover Count Number of times HA failover occurred.
Reason for termination Displays the reason for a session termination. For example, ICA Session Timeout, Session terminated by the user.
ICA RTT ICA RTT is the screen lag that the user experiences while interacting with an application or desktop hosted on XenApp or XenDesktop respectively.
WAN latency Latency caused by the client side of the network. I.e. from NetScaler to end user.
DC latency Latency caused by the server side of the network. I.e. from NetScaler to backend servers.
Total Bytes Total Bytes consumed by the user during the selected time period.
Server Side Retransmits The number of packets retransmitted on the connection between NetScaler and backend server.
Client Side Retransmits The number of packets retransmitted on the connection between NetScaler and the end user. A high value of this metric does not mean that the user experience will not be seamless but indicates high bandwidth utilization due to retransmits.
Client side Zero Window size event This counter indicates the number of times the client advertised a zero TCP window.
Client side fast RTO Number of times the retransmission timeout occurred the connection between NetScaler and the end user.
Server side Zero Window size event This counter indicates the number of times the server advertised a zero TCP window.
Server side fast RTO Number of times the retransmission timeout occurred on the connection between NetScaler and backend server.
User Name The user name of the user accessing this particular XenApp.
Session ID Unique identifier for the XenApp session.
Session Type Will be “Application”.
State Session state: Green for active, Red for in-active.
Maximum Breach Latency The highest value of the L7 latency when a breach of a defined threshold for a set time interval occurs.
Average Breach Latency The average value of L7 latency when the system is in a “L7 latency breached” state.
L7 Threshold Breach Count The number of times a L7 threshold breach has occurred.
L7 Client-side Latency The average L7 latency observed between the ICA client and the NetScaler instance. This metrics is useful in case of non-Citrix devices being present in the delivery path.
L7 Server-side Latency The average L7 latency observed between the NetScaler device and the XenApp. This metrics is useful in case of non-Citrix devices being present in the delivery path.

Per Application Session View

The per application session view displays reports for a particular selected application session.

To view the Session reports:

  1. Log on to your NetScaler MAS using a supported web browser.
  2. Navigate to Analytics > HDX Insight > Applications.
  3. Select a particular user from the Application Summary Report.
  4. Selected a session from current sessions report.
