Citrix ADC

Built-in monitors

The Citrix ADC appliance contains various built-in monitors that you can use to monitor your services. These built-in monitors handle most of the common protocols. They provide options to modify some parameters, such as interval, response time-out to meet your requirements. However, you cannot modify the monitor name and protocol. For more information, see Modifying Monitors. You can also bind a built-in monitor to a service and unbind it from the service.


You can create a custom monitor based on a built-in monitor. To learn how to create custom monitors, see Configuring Monitors in a Load Balancing Setup.
