How can file systems for Netscaler devices be monitored if there is no option to monitor file systems:
DX NetOps Spectrum Release : 21.2
No, if you directly discover the Netscaler device in Spectrum it will be assigned type "Citrix Netscaler" which doesn't allow for direct monitoring of system resources such as "file system".
However, since it uses FreeBSD as its underlying OS, it may be possible to install NetSNMP (a free open-source SNMP agent) on it. NetSNMP allows for RFC2790 system resource monitoring:
If you cannot install the NetSNMP (or similar) agent, then the only option left will be to create a SpectroWatch on an attribute that provides filesystem metrics.
For system resource monitoring, Spectrum relies on resource monitoring agents such as systemEdge or NetSNMP. Without such an agent on the device, it’s not possible. We list the supported agents here:
So if none are available, then you will not be able to monitor the file system or other resources.
