Create monitors

The Citrix ADC appliance provides a set of built-in monitors. It also allows you to create custom monitors, either based on the built-in monitors or from scratch.

To create a monitor by using the CLI

At the command prompt, type:

add lb monitor <monitorName> <monitorType> [<interval>]

add lb mon monitor-HTTP-1 HTTP

add lb mon monitor-HTTP-2 TCP 2

To create a monitor by using the GUI

  1. Navigate to Traffic ManagementLoad BalancingMonitors.
  2. Click Add and create a monitor type that meets your requirement.

The Create Monitor screen contains two sections, Basic Parameters and Advanced Parameters.

Depending on the monitor type, the Basic Parameters section contains the parameters that must be set for each monitor. The Advanced Parameters section contains the parameters that can be used in advanced use cases.

The following figure is a sample of a Create Monitor page of the ARP monitor type.
