Monitoring and Managing the Real-Time Status of Entities Configured on NetScaler Devices

May 26, 2015

Use Command Center to monitor and manage the states of virtual servers, services, and service groups across the NetScaler infrastructure. You can monitor values, such as the health of a virtual server and the time elapsed since the last state change of a service or service group. This gives you visibility into the real-time status of the entities and makes management of these entities easy when you have a large number of entities configured on your NetScaler devices.

This topic includes the following details:
