You may be familiar with NetScaler Insight Center: a tool that can provide visibility and analytics for web and HDX traffic. But can NetScaler turn its insight lens upon itself and provide reports and analytics on its operational health and system information?
Great question. While this isn’t a feature of Insight Center, this level of detail can be garnered via third-party tools, such as Microsoft System Center Operations Manager (SCOM).
Thanks to a new partnership with Comtrade in our Citrix Ready program, there is now seamless integration with SCOM via a native add-on called Management Pack for Citrix NetScaler.
This management pack works across physical and virtual appliances and it can help you easily identify any particular network or system issues that could be impacting the performance of the appliance.
What’s even better is that if you’re an existing NetScaler Platinum Edition or SDX customer, this management pack is freely available to you as a part of that license. Visit the Citrix Downloads section to access.
