Citrix® Presentation Server service

The Citrix Presentation Server service monitors the availability of the port on which the Citrix Metaframe Presentation Server application runs. The availability of the port, determined by the service testing the port's connectivity, indicates that the Citrix Metaframe Presentation Server application is running. This service also measures the DNS resolution and the round trip time of the initial connection request and response. The availability results of the TCP service are then reflected on the status dashboard for the Citrix Presentation Server service. 

A maximum of three instances of this service can be set on a device, with each instance monitoring a different port on the device.

The Citrix Presentation Server service does not use the Warning state.
