NEW: Citrix NetScaler Management and Analytics Systems
So earlier today, actually two hours after I was done at work and was walking my dog, Citrix actually released a tech preview of their next-generation Insight and Command Center (Yes! they merged it) into a new product which is now in tech preview which is now called NetScaler Management and Analytics Systems which is essentially a combination of NetScaler Insight Center and Command Center.
NOTE: The NetScaler CPX documentation can be found here –> http://docs.citrix.com/en-us/netscaler-cpx/11-1.html
So from an architectural overview it now looks like something like this.
We can now pull info metrics from each instance using NITRO API, it also uses SNMP as command center does to do more monitoring based upon SNMP traps, it also does AppFlow monitoring. One thing that is missing is that CPX does not have AppFlow support as of now. But we can monitor it using NITRO API from the management console.
Also the Orchestration module now supports Mesos, Nuage and Infoblox in addition to the existing OpenStack support it used to have.
So how does it look like?
