Application Delivery Management


To manage and monitor applications and the network infrastructure, you must first install Citrix ADM on one of the hypervisors. You can deploy Citrix ADM either as a single server or in a high availability mode. If you are using NetScaler Insight Center, you can migrate to Citrix ADM and avail of the management, monitoring, orchestration, and application management features in addition to the analytics features.

  • Single-Server Deployment. In a Citrix ADM single server deployment, the database is integrated with the server and a single server processes all the traffic. You can deploy Citrix ADM with Citrix Hypervisor, VMWare ESXi, Microsoft Hyper-V, and Linux KVM. See:

  • High Availability (HA) Deployment. An HA deployment of two Citrix Citrix ADM servers provides uninterrupted operations. In a high availability setup, both the Citrix ADM nodes must be deployed in active-passive mode, on the same subnet using the same software version and build, and must have same configurations. With HA deployment the ability to configure the floating IP address on the Citrix ADM primary node eliminates the need of separate NetScaler load balancer. See: Configure in high availability deployment.

  • Migrate from NetScaler Insight Center to Citrix ADM. You can migrate your NetScaler Insight Center deployment to Citrix ADM without losing the existing configuration, settings, or data. With Citrix ADM you can not only view the various analytics generated by the NetScaler and NetScaler SD-WAN instances, but can also manage, monitor, and troubleshoot the entire global application delivery infrastructure from a single, unified console.

  • Integrate Citrix ADM with Director. Director integrates with Citrix ADM for network analysis and performance management. See: Integrate Citrix ADM with Director
