Citrix capacity Calculator

In Citrix Xenapp7.6 , how would I know if I need to add more servers to the environment.

For instance for published applications, how many servers needed for each 100 users that may access an application at the same time.

I know that there is load evaluator, but I am not sure if it will give you an indicator so that you need to add servers.

Thank you

The problem you have is that it can be hard to predict up front.

A lot will depend on how many users you have but also their profile for usage. Some apps (web front-ends, terminal clients, text editors etc) will be low load, low resource.

Others such as CAD may not be ideal at all.

And then you have everything in between such as Office.

One of the things that I would note is that XenApp is almost always the first to be blamed by users for any kind of problem simply because it's what they see and interact with.

Ensuring your backend infrastructure is up to the job is essential - networks, storage, file & print, user profile management etc.

Now having said that, if you look here and here you will get some very good guidelines from Citrix.
