Custom Monitors

Aug 29, 2017

In addition to built-in monitors, you can use custom monitors to check the state of your services. The NetScaler appliance provides several types of custom monitors based on scripts that are included with NetScaler operating system that can be used to determine the state of services based on the load on the service or network traffic sent to the service. These are the inline monitors, user monitors, and load monitors.

With any of these types of monitors, you can use the supplied functionality, or you can create your own scripts and use those scripts to determine the state of the service to which the monitor is bound.
