Tutorial – Add MQTT protocol to the NetScaler appliance by using protocol extensions
The command line interface (CLI) commands for custom protocol use the keyword “user” to signify the user defined nature of the underlying configuration entities. With the help of extension code, you can add a new user protocol to the system and add user virtual servers for user defined protocols. The user virtual servers are in turn configurable by setting parameters. Configured values for virtual server parameters are available in the extension code.
MQTT protocol is used for illustration purposes.
The following diagram illustrates a NetScaler appliance and MQTT client and broker tools.
