Manage and monitor using NetScaler Management and Analytics System

NetScaler SD-WAN WANOP AppFlow support enables flexible, customized monitoring of your NetScaler SD-WAN WANOP appliances.

The AppFlow interface works with NetScaler Management and Analytics System (MAS). NetScaler MAS receives detailed information from the appliance, using the AppFlow open standard (http://www.appflow.org).NetScaler MAS allows you to monitor, manage, and view analytics of the NetScaler SD-WAN appliances in your network.

NetScaler MAS supports a wide range of devices and can present a more complete view of your network. The NetScaler SD-WAN WANOP appliance has an extensive view of WAN traffic, including detailed statistics about XenApp/XenDesktop traffic, it provides key insights into the WAN user experience.

For more information, see Managing NetScaler SD-WAN instances using NetScaler MAS.

XenApp/XenDesktop example

In a XenApp and XenDesktop environment, if a branch user encounters low performance, the administrator might have to monitor the network, the users, and applications hosted on XenApp or XenDesktop. The administrators might need to ask the following questions:

  • Which part of the network is causing a bad user experience?

  • What is an easy way to identify the slowness in published applications?

  • Which virtual channels are consuming the most bandwidth over a given time period?

  • Which XenDesktop or XenApp users are consuming the most bandwidth over a given time period?

  • For a given XenDesktop user, what is the average client and server-side latency, and the average jitter?

  • What are the top applications across all XenApp users, by up-time and total number of launches over a given time period?

  • What is the Datacenter latency?

The NetScaler SD-WAN WANOP AppFlow support provides answers to all of the above questions, allowing, for example, a congested WAN link to be distinguished from a slow server or a slow client.
