Managing NetScaler SD-WAN instances using NetScaler MAS

NetScaler MAS allows you to monitor, manage, and view analytics of the NetScaler SD-WAN appliances in your Network. The following interoperability table provides information on which features of NetScaler MAS are currently supported in each of the NetScaler SD-WAN platform editions.

Inter-operability matrix of NetScaler SD-WAN platform editions and NetScaler MAS features:

Platform Edition Discovery Configuration Monitoring Reporting (Network Reports) Event Management HDX Insight WAN Insight HDX Insight (Multi-hop Deployment)
NetScaler SD-WAN WANOP Yes Yes Yes Yes Yes Yes Yes Yes
NetScaler SD-WAN SE Yes No No No No No No Yes
NetScaler SD-WAN EE Yes No No No No Yes No Yes

NetScaler SD-WAN versions supported by NetScaler MAS:

Platform Edition NetScaler SD-WAN Version NetScaler MAS Version
NetScaler SD-WAN WANOP Citrix CloudBridge 7.4 and later NetScaler MAS 11.0 and later
NetScaler SD-WAN SE NetScaler SD-WAN 9.3.0 and later NetScaler MAS 12.0.53.8 and later
NetScaler SD-WAN EE NetScaler SD-WAN 9.3.0 and later NetScaler MAS 12.0.53.8 and later

You can add a NetScaler SD-WAN WO appliance as a managed instance on NetScaler MAS. For more information see, Add Instances to NetScaler MAS. You can view the WAN insight, HDX insight, Network reports, and Event reports for NetScaler SD-WAN WO instances.

NetScaler MAS allows NetScaler SD-WAN Standard Edition (SE) and Enterprise Edition (EE) appliances to register themselves as managed instances on NetScaler MAS.

To add a NetScaler SD-WAN SE/EE appliance to NetScaler MAS, configure NetScaler MAS as an AppFlow collector on the NetScaler SD-WAN SE/EE appliances. The NetScaler SD-WAN SE/EE appliance adds itself as a managed instance on NetScaler MAS. The SD-WAN SE/EE appliance then sends the analytics data to NetScaler MAS.

You can set NetScaler MAS as an AppFlow collector on each SD-WAN SE/EE device, or use the NetScaler SD-WAN Center to export the configuration to the managed appliances.

For more information, see Adding NetScaler SD-WAN SE/EE Instances in NetScaler MAS.

For a NetScaler SD-WAN EE appliance, you can view HDX data records or multi-hop data, depending on the AppFlow configuration. A NetScaler SD-WAN SE appliance provides multi-hop data only. For more information see, Viewing HDX Insight Reports and Metrics and Viewing Analytics Data for Multi-hop Deployment.
