Improvements to RTT calculation

Citrix ADC instances might not able to calculate the RTT value for some transactions. For such transactions, the web transaction analytics and Web Insight in ADM display the RTT value as < 1 ms.

The RTT calculation for such transactions is improved and ADM now displays the following RTT values as:

  • NA - Displays when the ADC instance cannot calculate the RTT.

  • < 1ms - Displays when the ADC instance calculates the RTT in decimals between 0 ms and 1 ms. For example, 0.22 ms.

[NSADM-65648]

In Applications > Web Insight, you can now view details for the following SSL parameters under SSL Errors:

  • Cipher mismatch

  • Unsupported Ciphers

SSL error details

Under SSL errors, click an SSL parameter (Cipher Mismatch or Unsupported Ciphers) to view details such as the SSL cipher name, the recommended actions, and the details of the affected applications and clients.

For more information, see Web Insight.

Miscellaneous

While registering the ADM agent, the default password must be changed. If the new password contains a special character such as open and/or close bracket, a syntax error occurs. As a result, you cannot log on to ADM agent.
