Citrix Environment: Citrix XD 7.15 LTSR CU 3
Provisioning technology:  MCS
HSD/ VDI OS: Windows 10 
Profile type: UPM
Hypervisor: VMWARE ESXi 6.5
--Problem Statement:
I am looking at the Citrix Director --> Trends --> Logon Performance report.
It is showing over 150 seconds for lots of users for logon duration. Now I am confused because the numbers don't add up.
For example, a user h.graham has 246.578 seconds, but if I add up
HDX Connection (6.5 Seconds)
+Authentication (0.016 Seconds)
+GPOs (3.54 Seconds)
+Logon Scripts (2.39 Seconds)
+Profile Load (2.046 Seconds)
+Interactive Session (16.243 Seconds)
Total (30.735 Seconds)
 
I am not sure where are the rest of the 218.843 seconds accounted.
ControlUp's logon duration analysis script, which is available for free ( https://www.citrix.com/blogs/2018/10/10/analyze-logon-duration-script-just-got-more-powerful/ ), may help you pinpoint the issue more. However, simple observation of a problem user may also help you.
This Script is not available in controlup website.
Do we have any similar PowerShell Script to analysis Citrix VDI Logon Performance ?

The ControlUp script is pretty widely used in Citrix environments. Why is it unsuitable? Do you want someone to reinvent the wheel?

This script requires that ‘Audit Process Tracking’ will be enabled In the computer ‘Audit Settings of the Security Policy’ It is recommended that the ‘Security’ log size will be increased to at least 50MB.
