This course provides the foundation to manage, configure and monitor advanced features and components of Citrix NetScaler 10.5. Interactive discussion and hands-on labs guide learners through advanced administration tasks such as troubleshooting, configuring application security with Citrix Application Firewall, tuning the NetScaler for high-traffic loads, configuring AAA for system management, and configuring advanced policies using service callouts. Advanced monitoring and management tasks such as configuring and implementing NetScaler Insight Center, Command Center, and NetScaler Web Logging are also covered. Prior NetScaler knowledge is strongly recommended. In order to successfully complete this course, learners will have access to hands-on exercises within a virtual lab environment.

This course is based on the Citrix NetScaler 10.5 product, but the skills and fundamental concepts learned are common to earlier product versions.

This course is intended for system administrators or network operations personnel who configure and administer Citrix NetScaler products.

Webucator provides a really interactive, fun way of learning Excel. I enjoyed having the opportunity to view and demonstrate lessons with our instructor and classmates. It is a really cool program that I will be recommending to people who need refreshers in Excel.
