Monitoring Citric License Use

dquillen asked

Last Modified: 2008-02-26
Is there a way to monitor what my peak Citrix license usage is?  I checked under Perfmon but nothing.  I am trying to evaluate if I have enough, too many, or too few licenses.  Thanks in advance for any help.

Sorry, should have included this information in previous post.  Windows 2000 Server running Citrix XPa FR3.

According to the link below, you should find items like this in Perfmon:

Object:       Citrix Secure Gateway
Counter:       Active Session Count
Explained:    The number of concurrent ICA connections being handled by this service.



Not using Secure Gateway unfortunatly.  There is a similar counter under Terminal Services, and that may be the best I can do.
This Citrix KB Article has a solution that I have tested before.


Use task scheduler to schedule the script at a regular interval over a period of time to get the information.
