Application Delivery Management

Integrate Citrix ADM with Citrix Director

Director integrates with Citrix ADM for network analysis and performance management.

  • Network analysis obtains HDX Insight reports from Citrix ADM and provides an application and desktop view of the network. With this feature, Director provides an advanced analytics view of ICA traffic in your deployment.

  • Performance management provides historical retention and trend reporting. With historical retention of data versus the real-time assessment, you can create Trend reports, including capacity and health trending.

After you integrate Citrix ADM with Director, HDX Insight reports provide you with the following information in Director:

  • The Network tab in the Trends page shows latency and bandwidth effects for applications, desktops, and users across your deployment.

  • The User Details page shows latency and bandwidth information specific to a particular user session.
