Controller Active Site Services Test

With the help of this test, you can periodically monitor the state of site services that are active on every controller in a Delivery Controller farm, and be proactively alerted if any of these services suddenly stop.

This test is disabled by default. To enable the test, go to the enable / disable tests page using the menu sequence : Agents -> Tests -> Enable/Disable, pick the Citrix Delivery Controller 5.x as the Component type, set Performance as the Test type, choose this test from the disabled tests list, and click on the < button to move the test to the enableD tests list. Finally, click the Update button.

Target of the test : A Citrix Delivery Controller 5.x

Agent deploying the test : An internal agent

Outputs of the test : One set of results for each site service that is active on each controller in the farm or for each site service active on the monitored controller alone (depending upon the isfarmserver flag setting)Configurable parameters for the test.

Configurable parameters for the test
Parameter Description

Test Period

How often should the test be executed.


The IP address of the host for which this test is to be configured.


Refers to the port at which the specified host listens to.


By default, this flag is set to Yes, indicating that the monitored server is the farm server of a controller farm. For a farm server, this test will report metrics at the farm-level - accordingly, this test will report the status of site services active on each controller in the farm. On the other hand, if the monitored controller is only a member of a farm and not the farm server, then set this flag to No. In this case, the test will report the status of only those site services that are active on the monitored controller and not the farm. 

Measurements made by the test
Measurement Description Measurement Unit Interpretation

Controller service state

Indicates the current state of this site service.


If the site service is up and running, then this measure reports the value Running. On the other hand, if the service stops, then this measure will report the value Not Running.

The numeric values that correspond to the above-mentioned states are as follows:

State Numeric Value
Running 1
NotRunning 0


By default, this measure reports the above-mentioned states while indicating the state of the site service. However, the graph of this measure will be represented using the corresponding numeric equivalents of the states – i.e., 1 and 0.
