I asked this question before but I am going to ask it in a different way
this time.  
What is the best way to measure performance on a Citrix server?  I have
complaints from users stating their session is slow, but I have to find a
way to answer the following questions:

1. 'How slow is slow?' 
2. 'Is it due to the load on the servers?'
3. 'How do we know it is not the network?'

I have been directed to the Citrix Server test kit but this looks like it is
only testing performance of hardware performing specific scripts by a
certain number of users.

What about measuring what is occurring right now on my servers?  And maybe
this is a dumb question but if performance monitor is the answer what
counters should I be looking at for this information?  Is performance
monitor the best tool at measuring these things?

What's keeping you from getting more from your terminal servers? Did you
know, in most cases, CPU Utilization IS NOT the single biggest
constraint to scaling up?! Get this free white paper to understand the
real constraints & how to overcome them. SAVE MONEY by scaling-up rather
than buying more servers.
