We did in fact hear back from Citrix support after a couple weeks with a ticket open. Turns out this is a known bug with Director and can be safely ignored They are working on a patch  to fix it. There is no known fix per se, the only thing they could offer me is a command to put on the netscaler that would "0" out the data basically making it as if there was no rtt.... not a solution imho so well wait for a patch.

That's what I was afraid to hear.  This has been going on for months now.

Yes we did in fact hear back finally. the Netscaler team as found it is a "bug" with the director, I've been told it does not actually affect user performance just looks bad in Director. they have been unable to give me a time when it would be fixed however. their current solution is to neuter director in such a way that it doesnt show that data set

We have a support ticket open since May 2021. I get monthly updates that engineering is working on a fix but it's not implented yet.

At least the release notes of the latest ADC firmware (12.1 Build 62.21/62.27) mention this behaviour  as known issue: 



The ICA latency of a session is recorded incorrectly as 64,000 ms in the Citrix Director when L7 latency is enabled. L7 latency is enabled when the "nsapimgr" knob "enable_ica_l7_latency" is set to 1.
To avoid the issue, set the "L7LatencyFrequency" parameter to 5 by running the following command at the CLI:
"set ica parameter -L7LatencyFrequency 5"

[ NSHELP-23459 ]



Unfortunately the mentioned workaround does not work for us. But the following helps at least for correct latency-values :


1. Enable the EDT Insight functionality using the knob “nsapimgr -ys enable_ica_edtinsight=1”
2. Disable the L7 latency functionality using the knob “nsapimgr -ys enable_ica_l7_latency=0”


After reconnect of the session the latency shows correct again but the setting is not persistent, you have to set this after every ADC-reboot again.
