Enable Analytics on Virtual Servers

You can enable analytics for a specific virtual server on the selected instance, representing an application server, and monitor the traffic of that application server. Analytics provides statistics for the virtual server.

Note: For NetScaler instances of 11.0 release, 65.30 build and above, there is no option on NetScaler MAS to enable Security Insight explicitly. Make sure that you configure the AppFlow parameters on the NetScaler instances, so that NetScaler MAS starts receiving the Security Insight traffic along with the Web Insight traffic. For more information on how to set the AppFlow parameters on NetScaler instances, see To set the AppFlow parameters by using the configuration utility.

To enable Analytics on NetScaler MAS:

  1. On NetScaler MAS, navigate to NetworksInstances, and select the NetScaler instance you want to enable analytics.

  2. From the Action drop-down, select Enable/Disable Insight.

  3. Select the virtual servers, and click Enable AppFlow.

  4. In the Enable AppFlow field, type true, and based on the analytics you want to enable, select Security Insight or Web Insight, or both.
