Sometimes it can be handy to generate a high CPU workload to test things out. Eg. to see if Application or environment manager type products like Citrix WEM, Appsense AM are doing their job as expcted in controlling rogue processes. ..
The Citrix Session Reliability feature is typically a good thing. It continues to display the application or desktop screen image to tne user even if the session behind appears to have dropped.

The alternative is to drop the session, this means the app appears to go missing. ..
