Monitoring an LLB Setup

Aug 31, 2016
After the configuration is up and running, you should view the statistics for each service and virtual server to check for possible problems.

Viewing the Statistics of a Virtual Server

Updated: 2013-09-05

To evaluate the performance of virtual servers or to troubleshoot problems, you can display details of the virtual servers configured on the NetScaler appliance. You can display a summary of statistics for all the virtual servers, or you can specify the name of a virtual server to display the statistics only for that virtual server. You can display the following details:

  • Name
  • IP address
  • Port
  • Protocol
  • State of the virtual server
  • Rate of requests received
  • Rate of hits

To display virtual server statistics by using the command line interface

To display a summary of the statistics for all the virtual servers currently configured on the NetScaler, or for a single virtual server, at the command prompt, type:

stat lb vserver [-detail] [<name>]

Example

>stat lb vserver -detail
