You can add a NetScaler SD-WAN WO appliance as a managed instance on NetScaler MAS. For more information see, Add Instances to NetScaler MAS. You can view the WAN insight, HDX insight, Network reports, and Event reports for NetScaler SD-WAN WO instances.

NetScaler MAS allows NetScaler SD-WAN Standard Edition (SE) and Enterprise Edition (EE) appliances to register themselves as managed instances on NetScaler MAS.

To add a NetScaler SD-WAN SE/EE appliance to NetScaler MAS, configure NetScaler MAS as an AppFlow collector on the NetScaler SD-WAN SE/EE appliances. The NetScaler SD-WAN SE/EE appliance adds itself as a managed instance on NetScaler MAS. The SD-WAN SE/EE appliance then sends the analytics data to NetScaler MAS.

You can set NetScaler MAS as an AppFlow collector on each SD-WAN SE/EE device individually, or use the NetScaler SD-WAN Center to export the configuration to the managed appliances.

For more information, see Adding NetScaler SD-WAN SE/EE Instances in NetScaler MAS.

For a NetScaler SD-WAN EE appliance, you can view HDX data records or multi-hop data, depending on the AppFlow configuration. A NetScaler SD-WAN SE appliance provides multi-hop data only. For more information see, Viewing HDX Insight Reports and Metrics and Viewing Analytics Data for Multi-hop Deployment
