Clearing LSN Sessions

You can remove any unwanted or inefficient LSN sessions from the Citrix ADC appliance. The appliance immediately releases resources (such as NAT IP address, port, and memory) allocated for these sessions, making the resources available for new sessions. The appliance also drops all the subsequent packets related to these removed sessions. You can remove all or selected LSN sessions from the Citrix ADC appliance.

To clear all LSN sessions by using the command line interface

At the command prompt, type:

flush lsn session  

show lsn session  

To clear selective LSN sessions by using the command line interface

At the command prompt, type:

flush lsn session [-clientname <string>] [-network <ip_addr> [-netmask <netmask>] [-td <positive_integer>]] [-natIP <ip_addr> [-natPort <port>]]

show lsn session
