We need similar tool in our company and we decided to go with EdgeSight. It's a very powerful tool from Citrix company which lets you monitor everything regarding Citrix.

You can check EdgeSight Videos on myCitrix pages.

There is another option here: (free trial available).

Unfortuantely you are not going to be able log user activity on a Citrix server without a third party application.  You can, however, change the events logged in your Event log to include successful logon and logoff events.  This is done via GPO.

Not a bad software, but unfortunately not as nearly powerful as EdgeSight is.I think that EdgeSight is much more expensive.

Take a look at, it will allow you to record all of your citrix session. It is similar to the SmartAuditor feature which is included in the Citrix Platinum edition. This product will also allow you to generate detailed reports about user activites
