Enabling AppFlow on CloudBridge Appliances

Oct 13, 2014

To enable AppFlow monitoring, configure each collector is configured with a name, an IP address, and a port. Up to four collectors can be defined, and they can be enabled or disabled independently. They can also be edited or deleted. (Once defined, the IP address of a collector cannot be changed. To change the address of a collector, delete the collector definition and create a new one with the new IP address.)

To configure a CloudBridge appliance to send data to Splunk, do the following:
  1. On the Configuration tab of the CloudBridge appliance, navigate to Appliance Settings > AppFlow and, in the right pane, click Enable to enable AppFlow monitoring.
  2. Choose the kind of traffic that you want the AppFlow collector to monitor, by specifying one of the following the data sets:
    • TCP: Start collecting the TCP information flowing through the CloudBridge appliances.
    • WANOpt: Start collecting the TCP WAN optimization details, such as compression benefits.
    • HDX: Start collecting information about ICA traffic flowing through XenApp and/or XenDesktop
      Note: In release 7.2 of the CloudBridge software, WAN optimization is enabled by default. Choose the Data Upload Interval value to specify how often the data collectors receive an update, in minutes. The default value is 1.
  3. Add the collectors by specifying the collector details.
    Specify the following details:
    • Collector Name: Name of the AppFlow collector
    • IP address: IP address of the AppFlow collector
    • Port: Port at which the collector sends and receives data when the operation is performed. Default value is 4739
    • Status: Enables the CloudBridge appliance to start or stop sending the traffic information.
Note: You can specify a maximum of four AppFlow collectors on a CloudBridge appliance.
Caution: The volume of data sent to the collector is large, and might exceed your WAN bandwidth. Use AppFlow monitoring for local appliances only.
