Citrix ADC

Manage client traffic based on traffic rate

You can monitor the rate of traffic that flows through load balancing virtual servers and control the behavior of the Citrix ADC appliance based on the traffic rate. For example:

  • Throttle the traffic flow if it is too high.
  • Cache information based on the traffic rate.
  • If the traffic rate is too high, redirect excess traffic to a different load balancing virtual server.
  • Apply rate-based monitoring to HTTP and Domain Name System (DNS) requests.

For more information on rate-based policies, see Rate Limiting.
