   Swap activity This is merely a measurement of the number of times per second that the pagefile is accessed.

■    Processor usage This is a combined average of the percentage of processor utilization.

■    Memory load Memory load is calculated by a ratio of available memory to total memory.

■    Sessions Much like RDP, this is a ratio of the current number of ICA sessions compared to the total number of sessions available.


Citrix Load Balancing does not take RDP connections into account when figuring load balancing based on user load or sessions. To include RDP connections into the equation, things such as processor usage or memory load should be considered.

Published Application Manager (PAM) The PAM is the tool responsible for managing published applications and their configuration. PAM is used to manage Server Farms, set load-balancing features for published applications, and create the ICA and HTML template files to publish applications to a Web page. Most of the features of PAM use a wizard interface to simplify the application publishing process.

Shadow Taskbar This tool allows control over the shadowing features of the ICA client. A simple taskbar allows the user to create shadow sessions with one or more ICA sessions and manage the sessions they have established.

Citrix and the Internet

Back when we were looking at remote control versus remote node computing, we talked about how remote node computing was expanding across the Internet. Organizations are allowing home users to establish a connection across the Internet to access resources from their home PC. There are problems inherent to this model, the most pressing of which is the security risk of allowing these remote users access to internal assets. These security holes can lead to hacker attacks if not properly managed.
