Citrix edgesight to monitor Xenapp 6.5 farm

Posted on 2016-08-21
Last Modified: 2016-10-25
I have a small farm of 6 Xenapp 6.5 virtual servers on VMware platform with netscaler VPX.
I would like to monitor these servers and have recently received a request to provide reporting for these servers.
Citrix edgesight was my first thought but I would like to know if Citrix has moved away from edgesight (eg - director, netscaler hdx insight, etc) or edgesight is still the best solution for me as I am still on Xenapp 6.5?
Should I deploy other citrix monitoring solutions rather then edgesight due to any known issues?

I would say EdgeSight would be the correct tool for your requirement and also few third party tools are there where you have to procure the license. If you are a platinum customer then edgesight is free.

Edgesight is free yes, but can be a little tricky to set up and work with.

On the paid side, lakeside systrack, aternity, extrahop, controlup and nexthink are some of my preferred monitoring tools.
