Monitor all Citrix NetScaler (ADCs) from one console along with other Citrix tiers. Track NetScaler ADC resources, traffic, throughput, load balancing, sessions, VPNs and more.Start Your Trial
From being a simple load balancer, Citrix NetScaler / ADC has evolved into a networking powerhouse, supporting a variety of functions including application firewalls, VPN tunnels, caching and acceleration, compression, and ensuring fast delivery of web and desktop applications. Since it plays a central role, the availability and performance of a Citrix NetScaler device is crucial. Not only does NetScaler performance impact the user experience, but more importantly, it is also important for safeguarding the security and sanctity of the IT infrastructure.
The Citrix NetScaler admin console can be used for some of these requirements but manually looking at the consoles one-by-one is a laborious and time-consuming task.
eG Enterprise is a complete Citrix monitoring solution that provides great visibility into your ADC (NetScaler) performance. With eG Enterprise you can:
eG Enterprise is a Citrix Ready certified solution that monitors all aspects of Citrix NetScaler usage and performance. It presents actionable insights to administrators through real-time dashboards, alerts, and performance reports. Using a combination of Citrix NetScaler NITRO APIs, SNMP, and syslog messages, eG Enterprise collects metrics about all aspects of Citrix NetScaler's functioning.
With eG Enterprise, administrators can get answers at their fingertips for key Citrix NetScaler performance questions across various categories:
|Compression and caching||
|Capacity analysis and right-sizing||
eG Enterprise auto-discovers VLANs configured and tracks traffic through each VLAN. It also monitors sessions to reverse network address translated (RNAT) servers. Administrators are automatically alerted to issues such as packet drops, packet collisions, bridge loops, discards, errors, stalls, hangs, and more. Administrators also have visibility into the traffic to and from the NetScaler device for different protocols, including IP, TCP, UDP, DNS, HTTP, and SSL.
eG Enterprise helps you ensure secure access to the infrastructure by detecting and alerting on failed authentications, tracking the effectiveness of application firewall profiles configured, and isolating policy labels that are frequently invoked by the NetScaler appliance. Critical errors reported in syslog messages are also flagged.
One of the most common challenges with Citrix performance is slowness of access. When slowness is detected, is the issue due to the Citrix infrastructure or could it be caused by a poor network connection from the user end? With eG Enterprise for Citrix NetScaler monitoring, administrators can:
This insight is critical for empowering Citrix administrators and helpdesks to quickly troubleshoot complaints of slowness in minutes. To provide this capability, eG Enterprise can be integrated with Citrix NetScaler ADC Management (Insight/MAS) or it can be configured to receive and process AppFlow exports from the Citrix NetScalers.
