Citrix NetScaler MAS – Tips, Tricks and Lessons from the Technical Trenches

Citrix NetScaler MAS – Tips, Tricks and Lessons from the Technical Trenches

Citrix Consulting is seeing more and more NetScaler deployed in field. While we typically get involved post sales, our scope tends to encompass complex assessments, design, deployment and maintenance strategies for a customer’s infrastructure. We have seen the evolution of management tools for NetScaler ranging from Citrix Command Center, Insight Center and now NetScaler Management & Analytics System (MAS).

Command Center was one of our earliest systems management tools that was offered free for our customers. This tool would integrate with Windows or Linux Operating Systems and many popular third-party databases, like MYSQL or MSSQL, and allow for automatic backups, management of VIPs, certificates, custom reports, etc. Insight Center was introduced subsequently to provide detailed analytics initially for ICA (HDX Insight) and then for Web Insight.

NetScaler MAS was built from the ground up to combine features and functionality of both Command Center and Insight Center allowing customers to eliminate multiple consoles and software builds for systems management and monitoring.  MAS uses the Insight Center model where the software (a VM) includes both the core services and database built into the virtual appliance. The virtual appliance is loaded onto hypervisor platforms like VMWare, XenServer, Hyper-V, etc.

As part of our November 17 webinar on NetScaler MAS, we will be covering our experiences in the field specifically with MAS architecture, recommendations on firmware and NetScalers versions, security considerations, tips and tricks, troubleshooting and other best practices.
