Citrix NetScaler Load Balancing Report
The Citrix Load Balancing Report lets you analyze the usage trends of the load balancers in your organization. For the selected time frame, the report presents data about past activity and performance, either individually for each load balancer or in summary form for all selected load balancers.
Use the report to answer questions like:
- Do I need to add more capacity to serve the load balancers?
- How many requests does a certain load balancer usually handle during business hours?
- Is load balancer traffic and behavior influencing user experience?
Select Which Load Balancers to View
By default, the report shows all load balancers in your environment. To select which load balancers to include in the report:
- In the first dropdown, select which NetScalers to include.
- In the second dropdown, select which load balancers to include. The list of available load balancers depends on your selected NetScalers.
Select a Graph Display Mode
Set whether to plot load balancers on the graphs individually, or as a summary of all selected load balancers.
One Line - Summary plots all selected load balancers as a single line. If the metric is a percentage, the value is the average of the percentages of all selected load balancers. For all other metrics, the value is the sum of the average values of all selected load balancers.
One Line - Per Appliance plots all selected load balancers individually.
The graph display mode does not affect the grid at the bottom of the report.
This section describes the data you can find in the report.
Total (average) number of client connections to all (each) of the selected virtual servers together (individually)
Total (average) rate of request/response bits, for all (each) of the selected load balancers together (individually), in Mbps
