How to set up summary report system in Citrix XenApp 6.5

Hi,

We are planning to upgrade our Citrix XenApp system from 5.0 to 6.5;

In Version 5.0, Citrix provides a solution of summary report, which store and generate reports of all the users' application usage time info, etc., using Oracle 11g R1 database as the summary database.

I am trying to get the similar solution in Citrix XenApp 6.5, but the only thing Citrix recommends is EdgeSight. It requests SQL SERVER standard, which would be costly to us, especially when we are keeping oracle databases at the same time. I would like to know if there is  a way to just use the same summary report solution the same as in XenApp 5.0?  Or is there any other alternative solution of collecting user data?

Thank you so much for the time. Any suggestion is appreciated.

Thanks,

Jing

nope there is no option to maintain summary report in xenapp 6.5, you need to go for edgesight to collect user data

How about I keep the EdgeSight but use Oracle 11g Database?
Does EdgeSight use ODBC connection?

Or any other way of collecting user's application usage hours?
I remember in the past crystal report is used for this purpose too. It's not usable any more after the upgrade. But I would like to something similar to it.

All we need is a tool that can track user's login time, and it'll be only used internally.
This is the best money I have ever spent. I cannot not tell you how many times these folks have saved my bacon. I learn so much from the contributors.

With edgesight you can pull more than you with other version. I use Edgesight regularly, to pull historical and real-time reports. You can get any type of reports for an hour, day, week and so on. But unfortunately, it will work only with SQL server.

I too was a huge fan of the old Resource Manager summary report, but it's gone forever after you decommission your last XenApp 5.0 server.

Although not supported, try running EdgeSight with SQL Server Express 2008 R2 with Reporting Services.  It *should* work for you with a small XenApp farm.  By small, I'm suggesting that you keep in mind the boundaries of SQL Server Express.
