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.

Edgesight is suggested by citrix and it's free to use.
