Configure Citrix NetScaler to produce data via IPFIX or syslog
The Splunk Add-on for Citrix NetScaler supports multiple data input methods. If you are only collecting data via the modular input, which pulls data from your Citrix NetScaler devices using the NITRO API, you can skip this step.
If you want to collect data about traffic on your network, authentication activity, and web server data, collect data via IPFIX as well, as this data is not available via the NITRO REST API. You also have the option to collect authentication and network data via syslog, if you prefer.
Configure Citrix NetScaler to produce IPFIX data
- Follow the instructions in the AppFlow configuration guide and set your Splunk Enterprise data collection node as the collector.
- If you have not already done so, install the Splunk Stream app on your data collection node.
- Next, configure Splunk Stream to ingest IPFIX data on your Splunk Enterprise data collection node.
