Citrix App Delivery and Security Service – Self Managed

Configuring Analytics settings

Before you start using the Analytics feature on Citrix App Delivery and Security Service – Self Managed to gain visibility into your instance and application data, it is recommended that you configure a few analytics settings to ensure optimal experience with this feature.

Creating Thresholds and Alerts for Analytics

You can set thresholds and alerts to monitor the analytics’ metrics of the managed virtual servers configured on the discovered instances. When the value of a metric exceeds the threshold, Citrix App Delivery and Security Service – Self Managed generates an event to signify a threshold breach.

You can also associate actions with the set thresholds. Actions include displaying an alert on the GUI, sending Email as configured.

For example, you can set a threshold to generate an event for HDX insight if any user’s ICA RTT value exceeds 1 second. You can also enable alerts for the generated event, and send the threshold breach information to a configured Email list.

To create thresholds and alerts for analytics:

  1. Navigate to Settings > Analytics Settings > Thresholds.

  2. On the Thresholds screen, click Add to add a new threshold and configure alerts for the set thresholds.

    • Duration - Interval for which you want to configure the threshold.
