Smart Tools

Smart Tools is a service in Citrix Cloud that includes Smart Check and Smart Scale. These features help you stay on top of the health of your on-premises Virtual Apps and Desktops Site and control the costs associated with accommodating user demand for applications and desktops within your Site.

Smart Check provides the following benefits:

  • Discover issues before they impact users with regularly scheduled health checks.
  • Receive notifications about discovered issues, including how they impact your users and recommended fixes.
  • Learn about updates for your Site so you can plan for deploying them using your own processes.
  • Access a variety of Citrix-published troubleshooting and diagnostic tools in one place, including Citrix Insight Services.

Smart Scale provides the following benefits:

  • Ensure availability and control costs by powering servers on and off based on usage, load, and peak times.
  • Accommodate peaks in demand or end-user schedules with load-base or schedule-based scaling.
