Monitoring Citrix Cloud Gateway Connector
To access your mission-critical applications hosted on the Citrix cloud from the on-premises components such as Web servers, you need to ensure that the Citrix Cloud Gateway Connector through which you are trying to establish communication functions without a glitch! To enable administrators to ensure the continuous availability and problem-free execution of the target connector, the eG Enterprise offers a dedicated Citrix Cloud Gateway Connector model.
Each layer of Figure 1 is mapped to tests that initiate REST API calls on the target connector, in an agentless manner, and pull out a wealth of performance information related to the connector. These metrics reveal the following:
- Is the target connector available over the network?
- Is connector consuming CPU resources excessively?
- How well the allocated memory is utilized by the connector?
- Is the target connector running out of disk space?
- Has memory been over-allocated to the target connector?
- How well is the Application Firewall functioning? Were any requests to the firewall aborted before completion?
- Is the HA node in a High Availability setup currently up and running?
- How well the integrated cache is utilized by the target connector?
- Is the origin bandwidth consumption high?
- Is the target connector over-loaded with SSL sessions?
- Does compression occur too frequently? Should the quantumSize be reconfigured to reduce the frequency of compression?
