Citrix NetScaler – Made to Perform! A must read for some performance testing tips!


I had a great opportunity this week to remember my engineering days where I would seat for hours (multiple nights) in front of Device Under Test (DUT) and performance test tools like IXIA or Spirent and trying to wait for the darn test tool ports to be initialized, config to load, test to initialize then test run.  Later, realized that you forgot some config on the DUT or on the tool and restart all the time consuming procedures all over again.  Thank goodness for a very patient team with a great NetScaler SE reconfiguring where needed.  It also helped asking different subject matter experts (SMEs) to see what parameters might be missing, etc. on NetScaler as well as 3rd party test tools.  And through this process, there is a Knowledge Base (KB) article CTX127237 that one of the NetScaler DevTest Engineer wrote a while back that gives some details on specific NetScaler configurations that maybe of use.   Some of the tips can be for SSL setup, capacity testing, compression, concurrent TCP connection and some other ones specifically for Ixia test tool.

Very good article that is available for Citrix Sales/SE’s to use.  Feel free to connect with your Citrix rep for some of these tips if needed.
