A unified dashboard to view instance key metric details

In Citrix ADM, you can view various insights about the usage and performance of applications, ADC infrastructure, security (Bot and WAF) violations, and so on. As an administrator, you might have to navigate to various options in the ADM GUI to view multiple insights. For example, to check the virtual servers (applications) and ADC instance insights:

  • You must first navigate to Applications > Dashboard to view insights for applications.

  • Then you must navigate to Infrastructure > Infrastructure Analytics to view insights for ADC instances.

For a better monitoring experience, it is necessary for you to have a privilege that contains an overview of all the required insights. Navigate to Overview > Dashboard to visualize a single-pane dashboard with an overview of the key metrics details based on the following categories:

  • Applications

  • ADC Infrastructure

  • Application security

  • Gateway
