Bandwidth Utilization for Citrix

I have come across some article saying that Citrix client use 17 - 22K of bandwidth. What does this implies ? If I use citrix client to access a ERP host on Citrix PS 4.5 server, can I have a rough estimation about how much bandwidith will it utilize per second ?

Thanks

Yes for the ones I checked.  If you click on a counter, then click on Explain, it will tell you the measurement for that counter.

No, it all just depends on many factors.  E-mail me and I will send you a Citrix PowerPoint file that explains it.

Thanks.

Try to add the Counters under Perfmon but they are all "grey" and doesn't allow me to select. Do you have any idea ?

Any good document to configure the policy in order to save bandwdith on Citrix PS 4.5 ?

I don't know of a document per se.  But just create a Citrix policy, call it Bandwidth and edit the properties of the policy.  There is an entire section in the policy called Bandwidth.  Go thru each item and see which apply to your environment.

I just checked on my lab server and had no issues with this.  I went to Start, Run and typed in Perfmon and pressed enter.  When perfmon started, I right-clicked in the graph area and selected add counters.  I changed the performance object to ICA Session and all the counters were there.

You can only add the counters when there is an active ICA connection to the server.

Yes, it works if there is an ICA  connection.

One last question, those bandwidth counters is read as bit/s, correct ? Tks
