Summary

Monitors the average user logon GPOs time (in seconds) for a delivery group. During this phase the desktop/server machine applies user settings defined on the Domain Controller.

When an application or desktop is launched through Citrix, it kicks off a huge stream of events. Profiles are engaged, printers are mapped, and policies are applied.

Configuration

Overridable parameters:

IntervalSeconds

The recurring interval of time in seconds in which the monitor is started (the default value is set to 300 seconds).

WarningThreshold

Warning alert threshold (the default value is set to 40 seconds).

Debug

Used for troubleshooting (the default value is set to false).

Causes

Applying GPOs can have a large impact on start time. Some of the most common ways that GPOs increase logon times are:

Resolutions to some common issues are as follows:

Issue Description

Mitigation

Having GPOs that heavily rewrite access to files and folders on boot can have a significant impact on logon times.

Optimize access control to reduce number of required changes. Use AD groups and build permissions into base image.

Merging GPOs takes additional time and adds load to the AD server.

Merge GPOs where possible, so that only several larger GPOs exist, instead of hundreds of small ones.

Having many printer and driver mappings can increase logon time.

Reduce the number of required printer and drive mappings where possible, and ensure that client printer mapping is allowed to occur after logon in XenApp/XenDesktop.
