How DCRUM collect Appflow data?

Hi ,

May I ask how DCRUM collect Appflow data from Citrix Netscaler? By port mirror traffic or pull from NetScaler directly?

Thanks.

Similar as Netflow AMD is not requesting any data but passively waits for the Appflow data to be send to it by Netscaler.

Thanks Adam. Any ideas about the overhead on Netscaler?

Hi Sylvian,

Actually AppFlows are sent by NetScaler itself. That's why we require additional but really easy NetScaler configuration. Inside NetScaler there's a configuration page where AppFlow collectors are listed and if you add DCRUM address to the collector list it will start to receive AppFlows.

Regarding overhead - we haven't seen any Citrix documentation addressing the topic, but according to our experience there's no noticeable performance impact.

Hi Kamil,

Thanks for your response.

Seems good to Citrix users like me. Looking forward 12.4 .....
