This threshold management is extended to configure a group of threshold rules and monitor the group instead of individual rules. A threshold rule group comprises one or more user defined threshold rules for metrics chosen from entities such as users, application, and desktops against an expected value.

What's New in Previous NetScaler MAS 12.0 Releases

The enhancements and changes that were available in NetScaler MAS 12.0 releases prior to Build 56.20. The build number provided below the issue description indicates the build in which this enhancement or change was provided.

Analytics

  • Support for NetScaler Secure Web Gateway Analytics
    You can now integrate NetScaler Secure Web Gateway (SWG) log data into the NetScaler Management and Analytic System (MAS). The NetScaler SWG appliance exports its logged user activity and the subsequent records to NetScaler MAS by using logstream. NetScaler MAS then collates and presents information about the activities of users (for example, websites visited and time spent on line). It also reports bandwidth use and detected threats, such as malware and phishing sites. You can use these key metrics to monitor your network and take corrective actions with the NetScaler SWG appliance.
