Enhanced Infrastructure Analytics with new indicators

Using the Infrastructure Analytics in Citrix ADM, you could monitor Citrix ADC instance scores by correlating multiple data sources. You can now view new indicators in Infrastructure Analytics to enrich the Citrix ADC instance score. These new indicators also help the administrators to quickly identify the root cause analysis of issues.

In Citrix ADM, navigate to Networks > Infrastructure Analytics to view indicators for:

  • Port allocation failure

    Detects when Citrix ADC uses SNIP to communicate with a new server connection and total ports available on that SNIP are exhausted.

    The recommended action is to add another SNIP in the same subnet.

  • No default route configuration

    Detects when the traffic gets dropped because of non-availability of routes.

  • IP conflict

    Detects if same IP address is configured or applied on two or more instances in a network.

  • VRID conflict

    Detects when there is VRID conflict and raises alert to administrator that there are intermittent access problems for the specified VRID.

  • VLAN mismatch

    Detects if there are any errors during VLAN configuration that are bound to IP subnets.

  • TCP small window attack

    Detects when there is a possible small window attack in progress. This alert is just for informational, because ADC already mitigates this attack.

  • Persistence Limit

    Detects when there are maximum hits imposed on the Citrix ADC memory.

  • GSLB site name mismatch

    Detects when there are GSLB configuration synchronization failures because of site name mismatch.
