Monitoring the XML Broker Services

Aug 31, 2016

The NetScaler appliance has a built-in monitor type, CITRIX-XML-SERVICE, with which you can create monitors to monitor the XML Broker services. The XML Broker services are used by Citrix XenApp. The monitor opens a connection to the service and periodically probes the XML services to which it is bound. If the server responds as expected within the configured time period, the monitor marks the service UP. If the service does not respond, or responds incorrectly, the monitor marks the service DOWN.

To configure a CITRIX-XML-SERVICE monitor, you need to specify the application name in addition to setting the standard parameters. The application name is the name of the application that has to be run to monitor the state of the XML Broker service. The default application is Notepad.

To configure monitors for XML Broker services, see "Configuring Monitors in a Load Balancing Setup."
