Is it possible to discover and monitor Citrix NetScaler load balancer server/service states?

0 Votes

NNMi needs to be able to show Citrix Netscaler Load Balancer Service Names and States in realtime.  Our NOC would also like for incidents to be raised when these services go into a down state.  

There is currently no Netscaler device server/service name or state discovered with each Netscaler device.

We would like to have all Netscaler device discoveries discover all configured server/service names and show their states.  If a state changes to down, we would like to raise an incident.

Our company's clients end up calling our NOC regarding an outage related to a load balancer service problem.  There is currently no root cause in place for this type of condition.  Adding this to the NNMi functionality would expose the problem immediately and get it resolved.  Logging into Splunk would work but sometimes Splunk lags and alerts are not raised in a timely manner.

NNMi Version 2018.05 or later

Hi AkashDeep,


            I have already done this process and I was told to submit it here in the forum.  I agree that this should be done with the process you suggest.
