You can use Horizon Client to run Horizon Performance Tracker inside a remote desktop or as a published application.

If the Horizon Client platform that you are using supports multiple sessions, you can run multiple Horizon Performance Tracker published applications from different farms. On Windows and Mac clients, which support multiple sessions, the machine name in the overview window identifies the farm from which the published application originates. On Android and iOS clients, and in HTML Access, only one open session is supported at a time. If you open a second session from another farm, the first session closes.
