Next-generation visibility and real-time control

NetScaler Insight Center delivers unprecedented visibility and enables real-time control in response to network traffic from a variety of services such as cloud, mobile and virtual desktops. Together NetScaler Insight Center and ActionAnalytics bring visibility and control to the datacenter. 

End-to-end application visibility and performance analytics

NetScaler Insight Center provides a 360-degree view for virtual desktop traffic and web applications. Based on the popular industry standard AppFlow, Insight Center leverages existing NetScaler appliances already in place in the application fabric. Strategically situated at key focal points in the application path, NetScaler appliances are uniquely positioned to capture the native intelligence from the network and application traffic passing through them.

Unmatched visibility for XenApp and XenDesktop

NetScaler Insight Center provides unmatched visibility for XenApp and XenDesktop through HDX Insight. For the first time, desktop and network administrators can ensure optimal user experience, employee productivity, and maintain SLAs for any user, anywhere, on any device.

Key capabilities of HDX Insight include:

  • Troubleshooting and analysis that allows administrators to dissect network data from various perspectives such as desktop, application, users and individual user level, resulting in fast root-cause analysis for customer issues
  • Real-time client and server latency measurements for detailed information about XenApp and XenDesktop sessions
  • Historical reports that go beyond the capabilities of today’s visibility tools to facilitate capacity planning
  • End-to-end performance data from the user to the virtual desktop environment, including network traffic such as round-trip-time measurements or latency calculations

Monitor web traffic

The Web Insight application allows IT administrators to monitor all web applications being served by NetScaler. Key features include:

  • Integrated, real-time monitoring of application and client traffic for troubleshooting
  • Historical reporting for capacity planning
  • User and server response time reports, so IT administrators can monitor and improve application performance and availability SLAs

Benefit from automatic real-time policy adjustments

View data as actionable intelligence

NetScaler ActionAnalytics takes the detailed information from AppFlow on application traffic flows and generates multi-dimensional views of what is happening in real-time. Graphical and tabular displays enable you to instantly view critical app delivery parameters, such as:

  • Top URLs being accessed
  • Top clients consuming application resources
  • Number of overall requests
  • Total bandwidth being consumed
  • Response times of the back-end infrastructure delivering the application content.

Optimize your network automatically

These detailed, real-time statistics are used by ActionAnalytics to automatically optimize the NetScaler load balancing and app delivery policy for the current environment. Examples include:

  • After identifying top consuming application users, NetScaler ActionAnalytics can redirect these users to a more powerful server to ensure that SLAs are maintained for all application clients
  • When the application environment is under unusually heavy load, ActionAnalytics can adaptively moderate individual bandwidth consumption, or automatically cache application content that is in greatest demand at any point in time

This ability to dynamically change policy in real-time to deliver the highest optimization for your exact requirements can help your organization gain the performance edge you need.
