NetScaler SDX

Obtaining the NITRO Package

The NITRO package is available as a tar file on the Downloads page of the SDX appliance’s configuration utility. You must download and un-tar the file to a folder on your local system. This folder is referred to as <NITRO_SDK_HOME> in this documentation.

The folder contains the NITRO libraries in the lib subfolder. The libraries must be added to the client application classpath to access NITRO functionality. The <NITRO_SDK_HOME> folder also provides samples and documentation that can help you understand the NITRO SDK.


  • The REST package contains only documentation for using the REST interfaces.
  • For the Python SDK, the library must be installed on the client path. For installation instructions, read the \<NITRO\_SDK\_HOME\>/README.txt file.
