Citrix Application Delivery Management service

Enable or disable ADM features

As an administrator, you can enable or disable the following features in the System Settings > Configurable Features page:

  • Agent failover - The agent failover can occur on a site that has two or more active agents. When an agent becomes inactive (DOWN state) in the site, the Citrix ADM service redistributes the ADC instances of the inactive agent with other active agents. For more information, see Configure Citrix ADM agents for multisite deployment.

  • Entity polling network function - An entity is either a policy, virtual server, service, or action attached to an ADC instance. By default, Citrix ADM automatically polls configured network function entities every 60 minutes. For more information, see Polling overview.

  • Instance backup - Back up the current state of a Citrix ADC instance and later use the backed-up files to restore the ADC instance to the same state. For more information, see Back up and restore Citrix ADC instances.

  • Instance configuration audit - Monitor configuration changes across managed Citrix ADC instances, troubleshoot configuration errors, and recover unsaved configurations. For more information, see Create audit templates.

  • Instance events - Events represent occurences of events or errors on a managed Citrix ADC instance. Events received in Citrix ADM are displayed on the Events Summary page (Networks > Events), and all active events are displayed in the Event Messages page (Networks > Events > Event Messages). For more information, see Events.

  • Instance network reporting - You can generate reports for instances at a global level. Also, for entities such as the virtual servers and network interfaces. For more information, see Network Reporting.

  • Instance SSL certificates - Citrix ADM provides a centralized view of SSL certificates installed across all managed Citrix ADC instances. For more information, see SSL Dashboard.

  • Instance Syslog - You can monitor the syslog events generated on your Citrix ADC instances if you have configured your device to redirect all syslog messages to Citrix ADM. For more information, see Configuring syslog on instances.
