Citrix ADC Cluster Counters

This article contains information about the newnslog clustering related counters and a brief description.

Using the Counters

Log on to the ADC using an SSH client, change to SHELL, navigate to the /var/nslog directory, and then use the ‘nsconmsg’ command to see comprehensive statistics using the different counters available. For the detailed procedure refer to Citrix Blog – NetScaler ‘Counters’ Grab-Bag!.

ADC Cluster Counters

newnslog counter Description
cl_cur_enable State of the cluster
cl_cur_nodes_num Number of nodes in the cluster
cl_cur_vleader NetScaler IP (NSIP) address of the Configuration Coordinator (CCO) of the cluster
cl_tot_dfd_steeredpkts Total number of packets steered on the cluster backplane
cl_err_dfd_dropped_steeredpkts Number of steered packets that are dropped
cl_tot_bkplane_rx_mbits Traffic received on backplane (in mbits)
cl_tot_bkplane_tx_mbits Traffic transmitted from backplane (in mbits)
clusterd_tot_cu_timedout Number of times the update to the client timed-out
cl_cur_nodeip NSIP address of the cluster node
cl_cur_adminstate Admin State of the node in the cluster
cl_cur_masterstate Operational state of the cluster node
cl_eff_health Health of the cluster node
clusterd_cur_recstate Sync state of the cluster node
clusterd_cur_chstate Health State of the node with respect to sync in the cluster
cl_tot_hb_tx_pkts Number of heartbeats sent. When executed from the NSIP address, shows the statistics for local node only. For remote node it shows a value of 0. When executed from the cluster IP address, shows all the statistics
cl_tot_hb_rx_pkts Number of heartbeats received. When executed from the NSIP address, shows the statistics for local node only. For remote node it shows a value of 0. When executed from the cluster IP address, shows all the statistics
cl_local_hb_tx_pkts Heartbeats Sent to node
cl_local_hb_rx_pkts Heartbeats received from node
cl_tot_ptp_rx_pkts Number of PTP packets received on the node. When executed from the NSIP address, shows the statistics for local node only. For remote node it shows a value of 0. When executed from the cluster IP address, shows all the statistics
cl_tot_ptp_tx_pkts Number of PTP packets transmitted by the node. When executed from the NSIP address, shows the statistics for local node only. For remote node it shows a value of 0. When executed from the cluster IP address, shows all the statistics
cl_cur_ptp_state PTP state of the node. This state is Master for one node and Slave for the rest. When executed from the NSIP address, shows the statistics for local node only. For remote node it shows UNKNOWN. When executed from the cluster IP address, shows all the statistics
nnm_cur_local_conn Number of connections open for node-to-node communication
nnm_tot_conn_local_msg_tx Number of node-to-node messages sent. When executed from the NSIP address, shows the statistics for local node only. For remote node it shows a value of 0. When executed from the cluster IP address, shows all the statistics
nnm_tot_conn_local_msg_rx Number of node-to-node messages received. When executed from the NSIP address, shows the statistics for local node only. For remote node it shows a value of 0. When executed from the cluster IP address, shows all the statistics
nnm_err_local_msg_msend Number of errors in sending node-to-node multicast/broadcast messages. When executed from the NSIP address, shows the statistics for local node only. For remote node it shows a value of 0. When executed from the cluster IP address, shows all the statistics
