Generate configuration audit diff for ConfigChange SNMP Traps

Whenever there is a configuration change in a NetScaler instance in the network, the configuration file is updated. The instance sends a ConfigChange SNMP trap to NetScaler Console. You can enable NetScaler Console to do a configuration audit on that instance when the instance sends a ConfigChange SNMP trap.

If there is a difference between the audit template configuration and the running configuration, a Diff Exists status message appears on the Audit Report page. Click the Diff Exists link takes to go to the Configuration Diff page, where you can view the corrective command. You can use these corrective commands to create a configuration job and run that on the specific NetScaler instances. When you run the configuration job, the instances are brought back to the desired configuration.

For more information on how to create configuration jobs from corrective commands, see How to Create Configuration Jobs from Corrective Commands on NetScaler Console.

To run configuration audit templates on receiving ConfigChange SNMP trap:

NetScaler Console allows you to enable the option to run the configuration audit template in NetScaler Console.

  1. In NetScaler Console, navigate to Infrastructure > Configuration > Configuration Audit.

  2. Click Settings on the Configuration Audit page.

  3. Select Perform Audit on recieving “netScalerConfigChange” event.


NetScaler Console performs a configuration audit for every instance that receives the netScalerConfigChange SNMP traps in the future.

  1. In the Time delay to run the Audit Template (in minutes) field, type the minutes. NetScaler Console runs the configuration audit template on the NetScaler instance after this time delay when it receives the ConfigChange SNMP trap by that instance.
