SNIP IP is used for health monitoring.

To check you can use the command - Show NSIP

If you want to check which SNIP is in use, you can check via packet capture.

you can check this link for reference - https://docs.netscaler.com/en-us/citrix-adc/current-release/system/troubleshooting-citrix-adc/how-to-record-a-packet-trace-on-citrix-adc.html
