We have two Citrix servers - both are virtual Citrix servers on two different Vmware hosts. Both have an application, App1, published. Citrix servers are Windows 2003, running PS4. We are using Program Neighbourhood on the desktops, which are Windows XP.
Sometimes we are noticing that users, especially one, are experiencing extremely slow performance when using App1 over Citrix.
The problem is extremely intermittent unfortunately, and difficult to tie down to any specifics. I would, however, like to rule out Citrix as the cause of the problem. I have checked the performance of the server that the user is connected to when experiencing the issues, and it seems healthy.
Does anyone have any ideas on tests to run? So far, I have come up with the idea of getting the user to log onto the Citrix server via RDP and run the application, as if the slowness was still experienced, this would rule out Citrix?
Any ideas/ comments, most welcome. I am interested in any perfmon type tests, Citrix specific tests etc
Also, what is the best way to force the user to use on specific Citrix server?
