How did you go about limiting the process, I use citrix for work as well.

Thank you to the OP. You just solved my fan problem! I was getting a headache from the fan running at 5,000 rpms constantly and it was because of the AGadminservice was using 100% of my CPU.

Does anyone know if installing the new OS will resolve the issue?
Either improve battery life and stop the fan fro
The above but allow Citrix tow pro?

Problem still existed in Mountain Lion - but the fix mentioned will still fix it under this version. :-)

Yep, it was Citrix that was hosing my battery life on my Retina and making it run hot continously. You have no idea how lovely it is to find out what that AGAdminService was and that cute command to unload it.
Had been getting nothing but ~3 hour battery life on my Retina since unboxing and was totally confused.

Hello there ,
I have the retina display MBP, but when I go to the terminal... :
Pavels-MacBook-Pro:Preferences pafaka$ sudo launchctl unload -w /Library/LaunchDaemons/com.citrix.agadminservice.plist
launchctl: Couldn't stat("/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.citrix.agadminservice.plist"): No such file or directory
nothing found to unload.

Thanks, I was confused why my battery was only lasting 1-2 hours after Lion then ML upgrade on my 2.26ghz Mid 2009 MBP 8gb RAM machine. AGAdminService was the culprit, had to run EtreCheck to realise that I wasn't checking "All Processes" in Activity Monitor! Once I viewed 'All Processes" it was clear, the service was using 99% on one of my cores. Ran the command earlier in this post to resolve it. I'd previously deleted the WatchGuard app which I presume was calling this Citrix service in the first place.

Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. This was driving me crazy and feared the fans were going to expire!

Je confirme qu'après l'installation de "Citrix Access Gateway Plug-in.pkg" un des CPU de mon MacBook Air était à 100% et le ventilo à fond !
J'ai utilisé le Uninstall fourni avec le package et tout est rentré dans l'ordre.
Merci pour votre aide.

CPU touches 100% and Mac becoming over heat, lesser battery life, noise from exhaust fan - If you have all these symptoms, first do one thing, If your mac is within manufacturer warranty, visit a near by apple store and ask the technician to check whether the exhaust vent is covered with dust, most of the time that is the reason behind all the symptoms mentioned. If your warranty is out already, then visit any of youtube link to clean the exhaust fan for macbook pro and perform the same. It gave me 100% result and my mac is back now. Its been almost 2.5 years and it works as new . Check this out and let all know how this works. Thanks for reading!

This sudo command works like a magic!
It was so annoying and I worried it makes a **** a lot of noise.
Thanks for posting the solution. I recommened this solution 200%.

Just come across this post and would appreciate some help. I have opened and see AGAdmin in activity monitor but as soon as I quit it the proces starts within a second. Have I missed something?

From the very top of the discussion..
Open a terminal window and execute this at the command line; If you don't know your password, you may need to look at other discussions ;-)
sudo launchctl unload -w /Library/LaunchDaemons/com.citrix.agadminservice.plist
