This is the fourth of five courses on managing a Citrix XenDesktop/XenApp 7.6 LTSR environment and/or preparing for the CCA-V certification. This course discusses the monitoring tasks appropriate for a Citrix administrator managing an environment.
This course is the fourth in a Learning Path of five courses that cover
Citrix XenDesktop/XenApp 7.6 LTSR as well as objectives for the CCA-V
certification. Courses in this Learning Path follow directly before those
in the Citrix XenDesktop/XenApp 7.6 LTSR CCP-V Learning Path. This course
discusses the monitoring tasks appropriate for a Citrix administrator who
is charged with managing an existing XenDesktop environment.
Course Overview Hey, this is Greg Shields, and you've found the fourth course in my learning path on Citrix XenDesktop version 7. 6 and the CCA-V certification. I am author evangelist and a full-time author here at Pluralsight, and this is, I believe, the fifth version of XenDesktop in all its prior forms for which I've filmed training. This one's going to be good. We're doing things just a bit different this time, though, as we map closely to the objectives and tasks that Citrix makes public in their CCA-V Exam Preparation Guide. We're also taking a different approach in that we're not so much talking about building a XenDesktop environment, but rather managing one that's already been constructed. In this fourth course out of five, we'll be exploring some of the key tasks in monitoring a XenDesktop environment, including digging into your hosted machines, users, and sessions with Citrix Director, analyzing hypervisor performance with XenCenter, keeping an eye on Provisioning Services' services, and peeking through a few of NetScaler's key visualizations. If you've just been handed a Citrix XenDesktop environment to manage, this course is your next stop in brushing up on those skills for success. And then from here you'll be ready to complete this learning path as we finish up by troubleshooting that XenDesktop infrastructure. Let's get started.
