Netscaler Dashboard Memory Usage

We started noticing our Primary Netscaler was slowly using more and more memory over the course of a of a week. Eventually when we started receiving reports of connection failures and users having issues accessing the Gateway web page I noticed the Netscaler was using around 85 percent of its total memory.

To quickly resolve the issue for our users we failed over to theĀ  secondary Netscaler node. Next step was to find out why this occurred.

We quickly gathered the support files from the Netscaler, created a Citrix support case and uploaded the files to for analysis.

After a couple weeks it was determined that there was bug in the Netscaler firmware and we would need to upgrade our firmware to 11 63.16 or disable AppFlow and HDX Insight.
