Recently at the Citrix Masters Retreat, I attended a session oddly named Citrix Sucks.
A lot was discussed, it was a pretty great session. One point that was brought up was the fact that Citrix's monitoring product Director just isn't very good. Personally, I have to agree. It's not the best product out there for monitoring a Citrix environment. Director doesn't hold a candle to competing products such as those from Goliath Technologies, EG Innovations, Liquidware Stratusphere, ExtraHop, ControlUp and likely others! I will get into each of these at some point on this blog post. Some of these products are very different than others so it's definitely a worthy topic for further discussion.
