Server Hardware for Citrix farm?

Q: Server Hardware for Citrix farm?

Well my boss has decided to go crazy and has tasked me with trying to buy server hardware for a new Citrix farm he wants to implement.

The problem is the talks I have had with Citrix people I can't get ANY kind of help as far as number of users per server CPU, RAM requirements and things of that nature, this is making it difficult to tell my boss the hardware we should get.

I already know we want Raid 5 and a fair amount of storage (as citrix has to have the applications images loaded onto the server correct?), will multi processor help the number of users that can connect?

With this in mind and knowing we only use standard applications I.E. windows XP pro, Office 2003, and fery few other applications does anyone have a clue what type of servers I should be looking at? I.E. RAM requirements and CPU speed.

Is CPU speed directly proportional to the number of users who can connect to any given server? I know we are going to have some kind of load balencing solution for failover but I wanted to get some ideas on what to prep for.

I am looking for a location to place a backup server. This server will only be written to unless the primary server goes down hard and clients are directed to start using the backup server. Bandwidth will be not more than moderate unless this server goes live as the primary - and in that case it will only be the primary until the real primary is brought back online.

My preferred location is close to a backbone router because I don't want latency issues to be significant - especially because my clients will all be doing dual-writes and this second write is pure overhead. Someplace in the central United States would be best.

This is a startup for an ASP service. My primary server will be located in Dayton OH. The backup needs to be far enough from it physically and logically to never find itself taken out in the same catastrophe.

Because this is a startup, I am very cost sensitive.

Does anyone have any suggestions?

I don't know if this is help for our server or Excel I am looking for. Here is the issue...

Whenever one lady is logged into a session on our server, she opens a word document that has an Excel worksheet embedded in it. The second she tries to click on the Excel worksheet, Dr. Watson makes a call and hits me with the following message...

When she tries to just open the Excel program, she gets this error:

We have an ASP database, connecting via Citrix. The Citrix server settings were provided to us by the ASP vendor. When there are problems, the vendor's reply is sometimes, "that's a citrix issue, it's not us". My question is, wouldn't the Citrix server be in their location? It's not my understanding that Citrix provides servers out on the cloud, out of reach of the vendor. Do I misunderstand this?

Thanks,

Ok,
Question 1

If I have a main office with 3 branch offices and the branch offices need to connect to a SCO Unix server to access the database, which would make more sense? VPN for each branch or Terminal Server with Citrix installed. All clients are running some version of Windows OS from 95 up to 2000 Pro.

Question 2

Now I want to add anywhere from 10 to 20 field agents and give them access to the same server. These agents will be running Windows OS's as well but most likely will be running DUN for Internet access. VPN or Term Server with Citrix?

Reliable connectivity is a paramount requirement since if the connection is lost, data could be potentially corrupted.

First off don't know if this it the right forum. Aplogize if this is not.

Question: My company is currently looking at deployment of a Citrix Server to deploy all commonly used apps(Office,Financal,Legacy Database programs, email etc...) My concern is that if 65 users are hitting this server for its apps won't this cause a major network slow down. The server is a Compaq ML380 with 933Mhz,256k ram,RAID 5 and is connects to a 10Mbps 3com Switch. Most workstations run Windows 95 and 98 with a few NT. My first thought is to change the Router and Switch to 100Mbps. I would like any feed back on this. Thank you very much

Bob
 

A:{Advice Offered} - Citrix Metaframe Server

I don't know how well Citrix will put up with 65 hits on the server, but I can tell you for sure that you should go to a switching 100 hub. I don't like running at 10 with 3 computers.

I am seeking hardware requirements for the newest version of Citrix, which they call Presentation Server. Considering our specs, I'd like to know what we'd need as far as:

RAM

other associated software (i.e. IIS?)

A:Requirements for Citrix MetaFrame Pres. Server?

There are no hard and fast rules as you will probably know by now.

Again it is a function of money. The more money you spend the more robust it will be.

I am assuming you are talking avout Metaframe 1.8 and not XP as it was called.

RAM 2Gb
Disks SCSI = 3 x 35Gb 15k rpm 1 for O/s one for apps and one for page file.
Processor fast 3.0Ghz or greater
Nic's as fast as you can support.

That should suppport 25 users running office.n However I don't know what other apps you want to run.

Any more info for us ?

Greetings,

I don't know if this a normal behavior or not but here it goes:

I have a W2K terminal server running Citrix XPs FR3, 60GB HD, 2GB RAM, 3.06Ghz dual processor. Any application being opened by users logged into Citrix uses an abnormal amount of RAM. For example:
- User logs onto a Citrix desktop session and opens up Outlook (or Word, or IE, it doesn't matter).
- Immediately the Outlook process consumes approx. 20-30MB of RAM.
- With each subsequent user that logs on Citrix and opens an application, the same behavior, the process spikes to 20-30MB of RAM.
- IF the user minimizes the window, RAM for that process drops off to about 3-5MB. Opening the window only increases the RAM usage by a few hundred KB.
- I only have approx. 20 users logged on at only one time yet my RAM usage is pegging at 95%!

Is there something in Citrix or windows that I can tweak to help manage the memory better?

Thanks in advance. - Patrick

I am wondering whether this is an option, our current environment we use a custom build Fedora linux clients to launch an ICA file with an auto login user and a fixed password the users do not know to a XenApp 6.5 desktop. It is time consuming to keep the linux image up to date with all the drivers and plus with us moving to xenapp 7.X the ICA file solution might not be the best anymore.Since we have 600+ HP thinclients we decided to try out HPDM and we have everything set up as we wanted, users boot their thinclients autologin with storefront and launch a desktop automaticly, but if the users logoff or the 3 hour Citrix policy logoff timer logs them off the users end up in the ThinPro Linux and have to click on their desktop again. We want to configure this to have an auto login on logoff . All the computers are open to everyone and users just have to sign in to the programs they want to use and then move on. Does anyone have a good solution for me? 

A:Auto login to Citrix AND relogon on logoff to citrix

In ThinPro when you edit the Citrix Session Settings there is a Setting on page 3 "Auto reconnect" which you can enable.This setting is also in the ThinPro Registry that you can capture, edit and deploy via HPDM (_File & Registry Template).

I have not heard of such an animal, and if anybody can shed some light on this I'd really appreciate it.

Here is a very interesting article titled "How a Gold Farm Works" and it's
gonna be very long.
Here is a most informative post in the thread:

-----BEGIN QUOTE-----
I guess I should mention, as I failed to in my last post, that I have been in
the process of dismantling my "business" since Christmas. You may wonder why I
do not just fold it up completely and immediately, but that lies in needing to
make sure that those I am responsible for, are taken care of. I expect to be
completely done within the month.

This is going to be long, but I'd like to explain what my business essentially
was, and my views on things in general and why what is currently going on is
quite serious for EQ. Not just for the plat sellers like I was, or just those
who rely on bazaar gears and trading to equip their character, but also those
at the raiding level. While it certainly impacts raiders the least, it does
eventually.

I started selling about 7 years ago. I started on my home server, amongst a
few other sellers. At the time EQ was EQ, no expansions, fairly new, and you
could sell 1,000 platinum for $500. I got into selling because of a GM at the
time who I spoke to on occasion who was selling platinum and other items from
places like mistmoore, guk, and solusek b. This was at a time a GM was an
unpaid volunteer player, and the kinks hadn't been worked out as far as the

I built my own pc, and have been running the current setup for a few months now. I dont overclock or anything.

Last night I ran NAV full system scan since i hadnt done it in a while, then went to take a shower. When i came back, the PC was locked-up, but i could see on the locked-up screen NAV found 3 viruses but only completed 17% of the scan. I was forced to pull the ac plug to turn it off since cold booting it wouldn't function or even the power button. After i plugged it back in and turned it on, the PC wouldnt post at all. I could see the mb light on, and all the fans in the pc were running (cpu fan, ps fan, case fans, video card fan, etc), but the monitor wasnt even getting a signal and it wouldnt post.

Here's what i tried so far:
> I have two ram sticks. I swapped them out and tried booting with just one stick, trying both by themselves
>I substituted in a different video card. Still didnt post.
>I tried adding a little thermal paste to my cpu since it didnt look like it had enough. still no post.

My guess is that either my CPU or my motherboard went bad. Correct me if I'm wrong, but even if my pc had a detrimental virus, it would still at least "post" since the pc doesnt even notice the HDD until after it finds it in the initial posting information which comes after the cpu and ram count.

I think this is different than the "should i air or watercool" thread, so I'll try to be as concise as possible, as I've found little to no info on this while googling.

For school, I'm about to submit a project proposal to the faculty for a render farm: The system itself will be 8-15 lower-end PC's linked together to a main computer to perform rendering operations for the art students. Render farms can get hot... the ambient heat caused by close to a dozen PC's can sometimes raise the operating temperatures to dangerous levels, especially on a system like this that will probably be utilized often by the hundreds of modelers at this school.

So, instead of individually-cooled systems which would possibly become a hassle in and of itself, I came up with the idea of placing all the systems into a fridge to keep the temps down. The thing I'm worried about most is the moisture in the air in normal residential refrigerators that could cause some very bad and very obvious problems. Unfortunately, most commercial applications either lack the storage space, are way too big, and they all cost more than a used car.

If anyone might have any ideas or suggestions for this project idea of mine, I'd be extremely grateful. Thank you.
 

A:Render farm dry cooling project

Hello! Welcome to TechSpot

Look into the server farms that are still out there/here.
Some have built a walkin cooler of sorts, basically using one or two units torn out of refrigerators.

Even a window mount ac would work for this in a wood framed and plexi glass or spare closet.
You'd still want to load each machine with a good fan systems, or strip them all the way down to bare.
No sheet metal sides, kinda like mini rack mount expossing
all componants but have a central network drive.
Exhausting the heat from the building may prove difficult.

I have tried everything I can can think of to illiminate this freeze-up problem when using sym farm (which isn't much being an ill informed computer user wanna be).

I checked the game's notes and consequently tried to temporarily disable my virus protection to see if that would work.

Do I have to uninstall my virus protection in order to run this thing? If not, how does one properly disable a virus program. It seems to thread in and out of everything on my hard drive.

I also am running Norton Utilities. Do I have to disable this program as well?

We also have Sym Ant which works well on this configeration.

I have a "genuine Intel" 166 MHz chip, with 32 MB RAM. I am currently also using Windows 95.

I'd appreciate any feedback as I'm really at a loss as to why we can't use this game.

Thanks for your suggestions.
 

A:Sym Farm freezes up when I try to sell things

Do you use Norton anti-virus? Press ctrl + alt + del and when the screen pops up you'll have a list of programs running. Norton will be called something like Navapw32 on the list. Click once on it then click end task to disable it. You can do that for all other programs except Explorer and Systray. That'll free up memory. See if that helps.

It's possible that you may not have enough RAM memory to run that game. How much RAM does that game require? It will say on the box if you have the box.

So i am going to be getting 9 (yes 9) 1.88ghz single core 2gb ram, 80gb hdd servers in rack mount style. Im getting these for free or dirt cheap.
So i have a few ideas of what i want to use them for, But not really how, But here are my ideas so far:

1. Web Server, but have the load balanced across the machines.

2. Server raid array, so like using multiple servers with multiple HDDs each and having them doing backups and backing each other up

3. I am going to be getting into some security research stuff and there are some scripts i want to write to calculate stuff for me, Like rainbow tables and whatnot. So i thought well with all these machines i could speed stuff up, plus get it off my main computer.

Thats all the ideas i have come up with so far, Their all things i have been wanting to do, but never got around to doing. Only problem is that i have no bloody idea how to do any of it.

I do consider myself a very techy person (more end user stuff though less corporate networking etc...) so i am willing to take up a challenge and learn something new! I am 100% open to any ideas for what to use these machines for.

A:Multiple computer render, node, etc farm ideas?

It really depend on what you want to do. If you want the servers to process a lot of information faster I would consider settings up load balancing on them. How to do it will depend on what OS you decide to use. I would probably looking into Linux cluster. A lot of information is available on Google with a quick search.

also...
A web server will only need load balancing if you have a lot of traffic coming in.

I have gotten a used emachine with vista. I have internet connection (wireless dsl) and I can not get adobe flash player installed. I have had the security checked and all is well. Anyone have an idea WHY "flash" can not be installed on this machine.

A:Can't install flash player for facebook, farm town, etc.

Do you have 64 bit Vista? (press the Win key and the Pause/Break keys at the same time)
If so, try typing "C:\Program Files (x86)\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe" (with the quotes)

Once it opens, then try installing Flash. If it works, then you'll have to make a shortcut to "C:\Program Files (x86)\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe" on your Desktop.

Hi,
I have to PC's of similar spec, and I can't decide which one is better to run game servers on like COD, COD4, UT2004 ect and a teamspeak server. Both run windows XP Pro
(This is only for a LAN btw)
First one is an old HP ProLiant Server ML 310 G1
It has a 2.80Ghz CPU
2gb RAM PC2100R
2 WD800 setup in RAID 0 (supposedly 7200 rpm but they are old now)
Intergrated 1gb/s network card.
Only has USB 1.0 ports
IDE Raid Controller
Also put page file on another intenral system disk

Or a Dell Optiplex GX270
2.6Ghz Pentium 4 With Hyper Threading.
1.5 Gb RAM DDR PC2700
PCI 1gb/s Network Card
WD5000 Harddrive (seems to get very hot short time, case has s*** airflow but nothing i can do about that)
Has USB 2.0
IDE
Overall the Optiplex seems the faster PC, but the harddrive although new (about 8 months old) is rather loud / cranky

The Proliant is about 6-7 years old atleast, but has more RAM and slightly faster CPU but with hyper threading on the optiplex, would the slightly faster cpu make any difference or not?. However even with the RAID setup, it still seems to have the harddrive as the limiting factor and is noticable secong lag every now and then.
EDIT: Also just bought a high speed usb memory stick, so was thinking i could use a program like eboostr to act as vista ready boost?

Also was thinking of switching the fast ram to the ProLiant server, would this help at all? currently it has ECC Ram, can you mix the too or not?
Just wondering what your guys opiions ... Read more

I'm taking a college course in networking basics. I have an assignment that requires me to spec out a server for a small business network that supports less than 30 users. I have found sites where I can pick and choose servers and server hardware upgrades, but I don't know what is overkill or underkill.

Can anyone refer me to a site that offers guidelines to help me with my research?

Many thanks,

There are internet appliances that are very expensive that allow you to share a connection. Just get a Cable/DSL router and a switch chained to it if you need more ports.

Hi,

I'm in need of some suggestions on what type of PC (hardware requirements) would be good to run versions of Windows Server. The PC would not be used for business purposes, purely for learning. All I need is for the PC to run Windows Server and run it without being too slow ie, I want an old PC to run Windows Server not a new one but I dont know what would be sufficient.

So if anyone can provide some suggestions, such as a PIII 700mhz, 256MB RAM etc it would be great.

Thank you.

Steve

I'm planning to build a new data server for my small business. Very small businesss. I don't need enterprise capabilities since we only have 5 client PCs in the network. I have a good idea of what I want in the system... except for the video card. The server won't be used as a workstation at all, so I don't need all of the features that are loaded on video cards that are found in every tech shop. I just want something simple. Can anyone recommend a brand and model?

Also, the following is a list of what I plan to put into the server. If anyone sees any mistakes that I might be making, please steer me in the right direction.

Abit KX7-333 mother board
Athlon XP 1900 CPU
Antec SX635 Mid Tower
350W Power Supply
512MB PC2700 DDR RAM
Standard Floppy
CD Writer (brand not yet determined)
3COM 56K Modem
Net Gear NIC
2 UDMA 133 7200 RPM 60 GB HDD
(maybe raid, but I'm not knowledgeable on the set up)
15-inch Monitor
Standard keyboard & mouse
NT 4.0 OS with SP6

I don't need sound of any kind.

Thanks for your time.

You have 2 threads started with problems with very, very old games.

Did you just get a new computer, and you're trying to run these on Windows 7? They're probably incompatible. You could try running them in Windows XP compatibility mode, but I'm not sure that will work.

Hi all,

We have system for our work that uses a web/application server and a database server. Around 150 people use this application and the data stored are usually text, ms office documents, pdf files and images. Suppose that about 50 people are using the system at any given time, what do you think will need better hardware specs, the database server or the web/application server?

Could you give any recommendations for the hardware specs? Like cpu, ram? A friend of mine suggested that it would be good to use the nVidia Tesla GPU for parallel processing. Is this a good idea or is this going a bit overboard?

Thanks

Greetings,
I am waist deep in home automation...trek homes you know. So I've of course ripped all my CD's for multi-zone multi-amp multi-soundcard music.

Now the final entertainment piece would be to rip all my DVDs for two reasons: 1 to protect my original DVDs from getting scratched (kids) and 2 so with the touch of a finger on my wi-fi touchpad I can load a movie sit back and relax.

I do not want to go the mult-Dvd disc changer. As with the multi-CD changers I see this as a dinasoaur.

With that Said:

Hardware: What would be the best quality video card for movie playing, HDTV etc. Estimated minimum Drive Requirements? 250GIG?

Server Config: Dell Dual drive raid server. 1 gig of ram. AMD chip? Harddrive sizes? Will of course take server recomendations from this wealth of knowledge.

Recomendations on Projectors?
 

A:Hardware and Software Question - DVD Server

KD,

As far as the "server" specs go, since you are apparently going to buy a Pre-Manufactured unit, eg, Dell, and obviously you don't want to limit your pleasure by anything as trivial as MONEY....Just buy the biggest most badass unit they offer.

And if it is specified as Multi-media, it "should" lean in the direction you want. As for the HD capacity...since you are talking about ARCHIVING all of you CD's and DVD's to Hard Disk, 250GB should be sufficient...for your FIRST hard drive !!! Go on from there.

As for projectors...as a friend of mine always says, "You never have to make excuses for buying the best." Pick up a magazine and check out the reviews.

Hello there folks,

i recently bought myself a little server. Now i want to test it for high availability and endurance. What tool can be recommended? I normally use the linux tool stress, but this only gives me evidence for short time usage.
I would also like a tool which is os independent and that tests all installed components.

Does anybody know what Dell or HP uses for stability and high availability tests?

All information is very appreciated! Even if the solution is non-free!
