Monitoring End-User Computing Environments with Azure OMS LogAnalytics with „Deploy to Azure“

Several months ago, I built a solution focused on monitoring the user experiences on remote desktop environments based on Citrix XenApp, XenDesktop and Microsoft RDS. Particularly RDS/RDP was imported because there is no solution from Microsoft.

End-user computing environments are complex and not easy to monitor. The most common monitoring solutions are focused on typical server parameters like CPU and memory consumption, free disk space and so on. But administrators need more insight into the parameters responsible for the user experience like bandwidth,

Updated: Azure Log Analytics Agent for Citrix and Microsoft RDS – Version

Over the last year I built a solution to monitor Citrix and RDS environment focused to the user behavior. The agent is focused on events, performance consumption, network activities and more regarding each user’s IT experiences. Workers in this context are Windows Remote Desktop Server, XenApp Servers and of course Windows Client VDI’s (XenDesktop) – in a cloud, on-premises or hybrid.

An important point is: There is no other infrastructure needed: No SQL server,

Use Azure OMS Log Analytics to monitor Custom Applications / Infrastructures: Citrix Workers

Azure OMS offers with Log Analytics a big data analysis cloud service. It comes with an agent to collect different data on Windows and Linux systems. It can also be combined with Microsoft System Center Operations Manager (SCOM). The collected data can be visualized by adding solutions from a gallery, searching the log with its own syntax and building custom views. Solutions from the gallery can be: AD Replication Status, Change Tracking and many more.

Create MSOMS Workspace for LogAnalytics Premium plan or change it from Standalone to Premium with PowerShell – Data retention 1 year

I use Microsoft Azure Log Analytics as a big data service. For example, I’m developing an agent for Citrix Worker to collect a mass of performance data for each worker in a farm. Performance data are: Different bandwidth consumption per user, running processes with memory and cpu usages, session data, logon data, etc. The agent uploads these data to Log Analytics and a custom dashboard shows different statistics and allows a capacity management of Citrix farms.
