I currently need to monitor a netscaler and I am having issues getting beyond the discovery. SCOM is able to see the devices through SNMP, but I am unable to collect any performance metrics.
Has anybody configured SCOM for this and if so, did you build a dashboard in Squared Up?
This is something I already know that there is a MP available from Citrix for the NetScaler. I am asking if anyone has had any experience in setting them up and once setup have they made a dashboard.
The citrix management pack has an installer which installs some dll’s that are required for the management pack to work properly.
This management pack has to be installed on any management server or gateway that is in the resource pool that is monitoring the netscalers.
This guy has some fantastic guides and I’ve used these recently to discover and successfully monitor a NetScaler in Azure:
Citrix offers the Comtrade Citrix MP’s to Citrix customers now for free now. Just use those. They have a NetScaler MP.
