Netscaler SNIP and Backend Server Connections

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone ,


In my XD setup I have my infra servers (SF,XDC,...etc) are in one subnet and the VDAs are in a different subnet. As of now I have created only one SNIP which belongs to the first subnet where my infra servers resides and my site is working.


Do I need to add another SNIP from the other subnet which contains all my VDAs. Will it improves any performance ?

The difference is routing vs switching. With routing the packets goes through a router before it reaches the VDA and goes through the router again on the way back to the NetScaler. In most datacenters, the router is in the switch and runs at wire speed so there's no speed difference one way or the other.
