NetScaler instances running release 12.0 build 56.20 and later include a NetScaler MA Service built-in agent. Instead of installing a dedicated agent in your data center or public cloud, you can initiate the built-in agent on the NetScaler instances in your environment. This agent enables communication between that instance and the NetScaler MA Service. Built-in agent is ideal for deployments that inculde an individual HA pair of NetScaler instances rather than a site with multiple NetScaler instances, as dedicated agent would provide better data aggregation capabilities than built-in agent.
The management, monitoring, and application dashboard features are supported for NetScaler instances using built-in agents. The following features are not supported now: Web Insight, SSL insight, HDX insight, Gateway insight, security insight, and advanced analytics.
Built-in agent is available only on the following NetScaler instance types:
To use the built-in agent, make sure that you upgrade your NetScaler instance to NetScaler appliance version 12.0 build 56.20.
Before you initiate the built-in agent on the NetScaler instance, ensure that you have:
To initiate the built-in agent on the NetScaler Instance:
1. Using an SSH client, log on to your NetScaler instance.
2. Navigate to the /var/mastools/scripts/ directory and execute the mastools_init.sh script:
./mastools_init.sh <username> <password> <service_url> "<activation_code>"
Once the built-in agent is initiated, click Register Instance on the Set Up Agents page in NetScaler MA Service to register the built-in agent with NetScaler MA Service.
