Advanced Analytics

Note

This feature is currently in Tech Preview.

The Advanced Analytics feature of Citrix Application Delivery Management (Citrix ADM) provides an easy and scalable solution for monitoring and troubleshooting applications that are delivered through Citrix ADC and Citrix Gateway appliances.

Advanced Analytics not only monitors all the levels of application transactions, but also uses machine learning techniques to define normal traffic patterns in your network and detect anomalies. This reduces the overall turnaround time and improves the overall application uptime.

In a typical deployment, thousands of servers cater to the data needs of the users. The traffic sent to these servers is load balanced and monitored by virtual servers configured on Citrix ADC appliances. Each virtual server is bound to multiple services representing the backend servers. In such deployments, the Advanced Analytics feature helps you monitor, manage, and make decisions during outages and other events. This feature monitors the virtual servers and services configured for an application and displays critical information about them, so that you can change the configurations as required to achieve optimum performance by the applications.

Use Cases

Consider a scenario where your application is running on thousands of backend servers in a large infrastructure, and the traffic sent to these servers is load balanced and monitored by using virtual servers configured on Citrix ADC appliances. Also, each of the virtual servers is bound to multiple services representing the backend servers.  As the infrastructure size gets larger, it becomes difficult to track the problems associated with the huge amount of traffic received on the servers and narrow down to the required troubleshooting.

When an application is running and receiving large amount of traffic, you might encounter the following problems:
