Citrix ADC SDX

Citrix ADC SDX 8015, SDX 8400, and SDX 8600

The Citrix ADC SDX 8015, SDX 8400, and SDX 8600 are 1U appliances. Each model has one quad-core processor (8 cores with hyper-threading) and 32 GB of memory. The SDX 8015/8400/8600 appliances are available in two port configurations:

  • Six 10/100/1000Base-T copper Ethernet ports and six 1G SFP ports (6x10/100/1000Base-T copper Ethernet ports + 6x1G SFP)
  • Six 10/100/1000Base-T copper Ethernet ports and two 10G SFP+ ports (6x10/100/1000Base-T copper Ethernet ports + 2x10G SFP+)

The following figure shows the front panel of the SDX 8015/8400/8600 (6x10/100/1000Base-T copper Ethernet ports + 6x1G SFP) appliance.

Depending on the model, the appliance has the following ports:

  • RS232 serial console port.
  • One 10/100Base-T copper Ethernet Port (RJ45), also called LOM port. You can use this port to remotely monitor and manage the appliance independently of the Citrix ADC software.
  • One 10/100/1000Base-T copper Ethernet management port (RJ45), numbered 0/1. The management port is used to connect directly to the appliance for system administration functions.
  • Network Ports
    • SDX 8015/8400/8600 (6x10/100/1000Base-T copper Ethernet ports + 6x1G SFP). Six 10/100/1000BASE-T copper Ethernet ports (RJ45) numbered 1/1, 1/2, 1/3, 1/4, 1/5, and 1/6 on the top row from left to right. Six 1-gigabit copper or fiber 1G SFP ports numbered 1/7, 1/8, 1/9, 1/10, 1/11, and 1/12 on the bottom row from left to right.
    • SDX 8015/8400/8600 (6x10/100/1000Base-T copper Ethernet ports + 2x10G SFP+). Six 10/100/1000BASE-T copper Ethernet ports (RJ45) numbered 1/1, 1/2, 1/3, 1/4, 1/5, and 1/6 on the top row from left to right and two 10-gigabit SFP+ ports numbered 10/1 and 10/2 on the bottom row from left to right.

The following components are visible on the back panel of the SDX 8015/8400/8600 appliance:

  • One 300 GB or larger removable solid-state drive, which is used to store the Citrix ADC software and user data.

    Note: Drive densities might increase as components become EOL but its size is never smaller than the original.

  • Power switch, which turns off power to the appliance, as if you were to unplug the power supply. Press the switch for five seconds to shut off the power.

  • USB port (reserved for a future release).

  • Non-maskable interrupt (NMI) button, which is used at the request of Technical Support to produce a Citrix ADC core dump. Use a pen, pencil, or other pointed object to press this red button, which is recessed to prevent unintentional activation.

  • Disable alarm button, which is nonfunctional. This button is functional only if you install a second power supply.

    Press this button to stop the power alarm from sounding when either of the following conditions is true:

    • You have plugged the appliance into only one power outlet.
    • One power supply is malfunctioning, and you want to continue operating the appliance until it is repaired.
  • Single power supply, rated at 450 watts, 110–220 volts.
