Export or schedule export of network functions reports

You can generate a comprehensive report for selected network functions such as Load Balancing, Content Switching, Cache Redirection, Global Server Load Balancing (GSLB), Authentication, and NetScaler Gateway in NetScaler MAS. This report allows you to have a high-level view of mapping between the NetScaler instances, partitions, and the corresponding bound entities (virtual servers, service groups, and services) that are present in the network. You can export these reports in .csv file format.

The report displays the following virtual server data:

  • NetScaler IP address

  • Host name

  • Partition data

  • Virtual Server name

  • Type of virtual server

  • Virtual server

  • Target LB virtual server

Note: For Content Switching and Cache Redirection virtual servers, the Target LB virtual server column lists all the LB servers, that is, both default servers and policy-based servers.

  • Service name
  • Service group name

You can schedule to export these reports to specified email addresses at different intervals.

Note

  • For GSLB virtual servers, the network functions report displays only GSLB virtual servers and associated services.
  • For Content Switching and Cache Redirection virtual servers, the report displays only the bindings to the associated LB servers.
  • SSL virtual servers are not listed in this report because a separate list of SSL virtual servers is not maintained on NetScaler MAS.
  • When a new report is generated, the older reports are automatically purged from your account.
  • You cannot generate a network functions report for HAProxy.

To export and schedule network functions reports:

  1. Navigate to Networks > Network Functions.

  2. On the NetScaler Functions page, in the right pane, click Generate Report at the top right corner of the page.
