Nugget Post : Viewing current sessions w/ citrix netscaler

I keep on forgetting that some elements in the Citrix Netscaler GUI are only accessible when you click on the parent element of a tree and look at the details plane. A good example is viewing persistent sessions that are currently active through the netscaler. Via the command line this is fairly painless using the sh persistence <vservername> command. The GUI equivalent took some hunting till I remembered to click on the loadbalancing entry on the menu itself rather than immediately clicking on the “+” sign to drill down:

Selection_165

 

This shows the equivalent of the command line:

Selection_166

From the above screenshot you can also see that the persistence parameter has been set to “source ip” since the entry for persistence parameter matches the value of the source IP.
