I want to begin with a big thank you for all the positive feedback about Remote Display Analyzer (RDA) and also a very big thanks to the members in the sponsor program, this really helps to drive RDA forward and to help balance the amount of time spend in this project by giving something back to the family. So thank you very much for becoming a sponsor!
If you read about Remote Display Analyzer for HDX for the first time, this tool will help you decide which display settings are the best for your Citrix environment. RDA will help you:
- Visualize Citrix HDX display modes, this will give you a better understanding of all the settings and what their effects are in real-time
- Only show you settings that are applicable for the active display mode
- Live switch between display modes and settings
- Give insight in consumed resources (CPU, Memory, Bandwidth) and compare them to other display modes while running the same workload
- Troubleshoot display issues

What’s new in Remote Display Analyzer for HDX 1.4
Below you will find a print screen of version 1.4:
As you can see there is a new section added called Total Analytics. This will give you insight in the consumed resources after running a specific workload. For example you can run your graphic intense application, your business applications or play a video and measure the total consumed bandwidth and the total frames that are send to the client. The average bandwidth counter will give you an indication what the average bandwidth consumption (per second) was while running your workload.
RDA will now also show you the detected (available) bandwidth between the remote environment and your client, there is a reset button which you can use to reset the total analytics back to zero so you can start analysing just before running your workload.
The HDX policies are updated to reflect the changes made in XenApp\XenDesktop 7.9 and version 1.4 also contains numerous fixes and improvements.
Remote Display Analyzer for HDX 1.4 is now available on the website. All existing sponsors will receive a mail automatically containing their new sponsor unlock password.
