Citrix Performance report

The Citrix performance report summarizes the validity of the run, graphs show response times, average response time, and the server health depending on requests.

Citrix Overall page

The Overall page provides the following information:
  • A progress indicator that shows the state of the run.
  • The bar chart indicates the overall success of the run with the percentage of window and image synchronization successes and the percentage of verification point successes. Synchronization success indicates that the expected window and image events in the test match the actual window and image events in the test run.

Performance Summary page

The Summary page summarizes general data about the test run, so that you can analyze the final or intermediate results of a test at a glance.
The Run Summary table displays the following information:
  • The number of virtual users that are active and the number of virtual users that have completed testing. This number is updated during the run.
  • The elapsed time. This is the total duration of the run, which is displayed in hours, minutes, and seconds.
  • The location and name of the test.
  • The status of the run. This can be Initializing Computer(s), Adding Users, Running, Performing Execution History Data Transfer, Stopped, or Complete.
  • The total number of virtual users emulated during the test.
The Citrix Summary section displays the following information:
  • The statistics values (average, standard deviation, maximum, minimum) of the average response time for all response time measurements. Response times are determined by measurements that are located in the tests. Response time measurements can be automatically generated between the last input action before a window create event and the window create event. The table does not display values that equal zero.
  • Total user actions for run. This indicates the total number of user input actions that were emulated during the run.
  • The total number of window synchronization attempts.
  • The total number of window synchronization successes.
  • The total number of window synchronization timeouts. A timeout occurs when the synchronization fails.
  • The total number of image synchronization attempts.
  • The total number of image synchronization successes.
  • The total number of image synchronization timeouts. A timeout occurs when the synchronization fails.

Server Performance Summary page

The server Performance Summary page shows the average time virtual users are connected, active, and disconnected.

The bar chart shows the average response time of each test phase. Each bar represents a particular phase in the test: connecting to the Web interface, connecting to the server, identifying, activity phase and disconnecting. As you run the test, the bar chart changes, because the time measurements are updated dynamically during the run.

The table under the bar chart provides the following additional information for each window:
  • The minimum response time during the run.
  • The average response time during the run. This matches the information in the chart.
  • The maximum response time during the run.
  • The standard deviation response time during the run.

Response vs. Time Summary page

The Response vs. Time Summary page shows the average response trend as graphed for a specified interval. You set the Statistics sample interval value in the schedule, as a schedule property. Response times are determined by measurements that are located in the tests. Response time measurements can be automatically generated between the last input action before a window create event and the window create event.

The line graph shows the average response time for all measurements during the run. Each point on the graph is an average of what has occurred during that interval. The table under the graph lists the statistics values of the total average response time for all measurements in the run.

Response vs. Time Details page

The Response vs. Time Details page shows the response trend as graphed for a specified interval. You set the Statistics sample interval value in the schedule, as a schedule property. Response times are determined by measurements that are located in the tests. Response time measurements can be automatically generated between the last input action before a window create event and the window create event.

The line graph shows the average response time of each measurement for a specified interval. Each measurement is represented by a separate line.

The table under the graph provides the following additional information for each response time measurement:
  • The minimum response time during the run.
  • The average window response time during the run. This is similar to the graph, but the information in the table includes the entire run.
  • The maximum window response time during the run.
  • The standard deviation window response time during the run.

User Action Throughput page

The User Action Throughput page provides an overview of the frequency of requests being transferred per interval. You set the Statistics sample interval value in the schedule, as a schedule property.
  • The line graph on the left shows the user action rate per interval for all windows. This represents the activity of virtual user input actions per second for each interval. The table under the graph lists the user action rate per second for the entire run, and the total number of user actions for the run.
  • The line graph on the right shows active users and users that have completed testing, over the course of a run. The summary table under the graph lists the results for the most recent sample interval.

Server Health Summary page

The Server Health Summary page provides an overall indication of how well the server has performed. The graph does not display values that equal zero.

The bar chart shows the following information:
  • The total number of window synchronization attempts.
  • The total number of window synchronization successes.
  • The total number of window synchronization timeouts.
  • The total number of image synchronization attempts.
  • The total number of image synchronization successes.
  • The total number of image synchronization timeouts.
  • The total number of Citrix server errors or errors encountered during test execution.

Server Timeout page

The Server Timeout page shows when the synchronization timeouts and server errors occurred during the run. The graph does not display values that equal zero.

The line graph shows the following information:
  • Citrix window synchronization timeouts.
  • Citrix image synchronization timeouts.
  • Citrix server errors or errors encountered during test execution.

Resources page

The Resources page shows all resource counters monitored during the schedule run.
  • The line chart shows the values of the resources counters monitored during the schedule run.

    The chart scales automatically to accommodate the highest resource counter value.

  • The summary table under the chart lists the average values of the resource counters monitored during the schedule run. This table is organized by resource monitoring hosts.
