EdgeSight for NetScaler: NetScaler SYS.IID

The new version of EdgeSight for NetScaler 2.1 was released 7/21/2011.  You can get it here (mycitrix login required).

I’m setting up the new  EdgeSight for NetScaler 2.1 and need to add my NetScalers to it.  Here’s a quick step-by-step on adding a NetScaler.

Log into the Web Console and Click on the Administration tab:


Expand Company Settings, then Server, then click on Device Management.  Then click the New Registration button.


The fields you need are the NetScaler Name, the NetScaler SYS.IID, the NetScaler IP address, and the fully qualified domain name.


The NetScaler name is just a identifier for the console.  The NSIP address is just the main IP for the NetScaler.  The FQDN is your full domain.  The SYS.IID is less obvious however.  You will have to access the command-line interface of your NetScaler in order to get this number.  The built-in help will walk you through how to find this information:



Once you fill in this information, your Data Collector will update and EdgeSight will begin collecting data.
