NetScaler Insight Center is a virtual appliance that analyses the traffic flowing through CloudBridge appliances and generates performance reports. NetScaler Insight Center uses AppFlow to retrieve the traffic information.
HDX Insight provides Citrix XenApp and Citrix XenDesktop administrators with an easy way to monitor the users and performance of the applications hosted on those products. HDX Insight captures data about the ICA traffic that flows through the CloudBridge datacenter devices, generates AppFlow records by doing deep inspection of the data, and presents the records as visual reports on the HDX Insight tab of the NetScaler Insight Center dashboard.
WAN Insight gives CloudBridge administrators an easy way to monitor the accelerated and unaccelarted WAN traffic that flows through CloudBridge datacenter and CloudBridge branch appliances, and it provides end-to-end visibility that includes client-specific data, application-specific data, and branch- specific data. With the ability to identify and monitor all the applications, clients, and branches on the network, you can effectively deal with the issues that degrade performance.
The following figure shows how a NetScaler Insight Center virtual appliance collects information from CloudBridge appliances.
A CloudBridge appliance resides between the clients and the servers. When a NetScaler Insight Center virtual appliance is configured to retrieve information about the traffic flowing through the CloudBridge devices, it uses AppFlow to retrieve the information and display it as visual reports.
A NetScaler Insight Center virtual appliance retrieves the gathered information for each monitored application on the CloudBridge appliance, analyzes the information, and presents it as visual reports.
