errpktrx<Double>Read-onlyNumber of inbound packets dropped by the hardware on a specified interface once the Citrix ADC starts or the interface statistics are cleared. This happens due to following reasons: 1) The hardware receives packets at a rate higher rate than that at which the software is processing packets. In this case, the hardware FIFO overruns and starts dropping the packets . 2) The specified interface fails to receive inbound packets from the appliance because of insufficient memory. 3) The specified interface receives packets with CRC errors (Alignment or Frame Check Sequence). 4) The specified interface receives overly long packets. 5) The specified interface receives packets with alignment errors. 6) The software does less buffering because it is running out of available memory. When hardware detects that there is no space into which to push newly arrived packets, it starts dropping them. 7) The specified interface receives packets with Frame Check Sequence (FCS) errors. 8) The specified interface receives packets smaller than 64 bytes. 9) The specified interface discards error-free inbound packets because of insufficient resources. For example: NIC buffers. 10) Packets are missed because of collision detection, link lost, physical decoding error, or MAC abort.
errpktrxrate<Double>Read-onlyRate (/s) counter for errpktrx
errpkttx<Double>Read-onlyNumber of outbound packets dropped by the hardware on a specified interface since the Citrix ADC was started or the interface statistics were cleared. This could happen due to length (undersize or oversize) errors and lack of resources. This statistic is available only for: (1) Loop back interface (LO) of all platforms. (2) All data ports on the Citrix ADC 12000 platform. (3) Management ports on the MPX 15000 and 17000 platforms.
errpkttxrate<Double>Read-onlyRate (/s) counter for errpkttx
errifindiscards<Double>Read-onlyNumber of error-free inbound packets discarded by the specified interface due to a lack of resources, for example, insufficient receive buffers.
errifindiscardsrate<Double>Read-onlyRate (/s) counter for errifindiscards
nicerrifoutdiscards<Double>Read-onlyNumber of error-free outbound packets discarded by the specified interface due to a lack of resources. This statistic is not available on: (1) 10G ports of Citrix ADC MPX 12500/12500/15500-10G platforms. (2) 10G data ports on Citrix ADC MPX 17500/19500/21500 platforms.
nicerrifoutdiscardsrate<Double>Read-onlyRate (/s) counter for nicerrifoutdiscards
errdroppedrxpkts<Double>Read-onlyNumber of inbound packets dropped by the specified interface. Commonly dropped packets are multicast frames, spanning tree BPDUs, packets destined to a MAC not owned by the Citrix ADC when L2 mode is disabled, or packets tagged for a VLAN that is not bound to the interface. This statistic will increment in most healthy networks at a steady rate regardless of traffic load. If a sharp spike in dropped packets occurs, it generally indicates an issue with connected L2 switches, such as a forwarding database overflow resulting in packets being broadcast on all ports.
errdroppedrxpktsrate<Double>Read-onlyRate (/s) counter for errdroppedrxpkts
errdroppedtxpkts<Double>Read-onlyNumber of packets dropped in transmission by the specified interface due to one of the following reasons. (1) VLAN mismatch. (2) Oversized packets. (3) Interface congestion. (4) Loopback packets sent on non loop back interface.
errdroppedtxpktsrate<Double>Read-onlyRate (/s) counter for errdroppedtxpkts
errlinkhangs<Double>Read-onlyNumber of times the specified interface detected hangs in the transmit and receive paths since the Citrix ADC was started or the interface statistics were cleared.
nicstsstalls<Double>Read-onlyNumber of times the status updates for a specified interface were stalled since the Citrix ADC was started or the interface statistics were cleared. A status stall is detected when the status of the interface is not updated by the NIC hardware within 0.8 seconds of the last update.
nictxstalls<Double>Read-onlyNumber of times the interface stalled, when transmitting packets, since the Citrix ADC was started or the interface statistics were cleared. Transmit (Tx) stalls are detected when a packet posted for transmission is not transmitted in 4 seconds.
nicrxstalls<Double>Read-onlyNumber of times the interface stalled, when receiving packets, since the Citrix ADC was started or the interface statistics were cleared. Receive (Rx) stalls are detected when the following conditions are met: (1)The link is up for more than 10 minutes. (2)Packets are transmitted, but no packets is received for 16 seconds.
nicerrdisables<Double>Read-onlyNumber of times the specified interface is disabled by the Citrix ADC, due to continuous Receive (Rx) or Transmit (Tx) stalls, since the Citrix ADC was started or the interface statistics were cleared. The Citrix ADC disables an interface when one of the following conditions is met: (1) Three consecutive transmit stalls occurs with at most gap of 10 seconds between any two stalls. (2) Three consecutive receive stalls occurs with at most gap of 120 seconds between any two stalls.
errduplexmismatch<Double>Read-onlyNumber of times duplex mismatches were detected on the specified interface since the Citrix ADC was started or the interface statistics were cleared. A mismatch will occur if the duplex mode is not identically set on both ends of the link. This statistic is only available on the Citrix ADC Classic edition.
linkreinits<Double>Read-onlyNumber of times the link has been re-initialized. A re-initialization occurs due to link state change, configuration parameter change, or administrative reset operation.
totmacmoved<Double>Read-onlyNumber of MAC moves between ports. If a high rate of MAC moves is observed, it is likely that there is a bridge loop between two interfaces.
macmovedrate<Double>Read-onlyRate (/s) counter for totmacmoved
errnicmuted<Double>Read-onlyNumber of times the specified interface stopped transmitting and receiving packets due to MAC moves between ports.
rxcrcerrors<Double>Read-onlyNumber of packets received with the wrong checksum by the specified interface since the Citrix ADC was started or the interface statistics were cleared. This indicates the number of Jabber frames received instead of CRC errors on the 10G data ports of Citrix ADC 12000-10G platform and the data ports of Citrix ADC MPX 15000 and 17000 platforms.
rxcrcerrorsrate<Double>Read-onlyRate (/s) counter for rxcrcerrors
interfacealias<String>Read-onlyAlias Name for the Interface
curlinkstate<String>Read-onlyThe current state of the link associated with the interface. For logical interfaces (LA), the state of the link is dependent on the state of the slave interfaces. For the link to be UP at least one of the slave interfaces needs to be UP.

Operations

GET (ALL)| GET

Some options that you can use for each operations:

  • Getting warnings in response:NITRO allows you to get warnings in an operation by specifying the "warning" query parameter as "yes". For example, to get warnings while connecting to the Citrix ADC appliance, the URL is as follows:

    http://<Citrix-ADC-IP-address(NSIP)>/nitro/v1/config/login?warning=yes

    If any, the warnings are displayed in the response payload with the HTTP code "209 X-NITRO-WARNING".

  • Authenticated access for individual NITRO operations:NITRO allows you to logon to the Citrix ADC appliance to perform individual operations. You can use this option instead of creating a NITRO session (using the login object) and then using that session to perform all operations,

    To do this, you must specify the username and password in the request header of the NITRO request as follows:

    X-NITRO-USER:<username>

    X-NITRO-PASS:<password>

    Note:In such cases, make sure that the request header DOES not include the following:

    Cookie:NITRO_AUTH_TOKEN=<tokenvalue>

Note:

Mandatory parameters are marked in redand placeholder content is marked in <green>.
