Create or add to an application delivery controller based load balancer service. The loadBalancer parameter must have its ''name'', ''type'', ''sourcePort'', and ''virtualIpAddress'' properties populated. Changes are reflected immediately in the application delivery controller.
Remove a virtual IP address from an application delivery controller based load balancer. Only the ''name'' property in the loadBalancer parameter must be populated. Changes are reflected immediately in the application delivery controller.
Remove an entire load balancer service, including all virtual IP addresses, from and application delivery controller based load balancer. The ''name'' property the and ''name'' property within the ''vip'' property of the service parameter must be provided. Changes are reflected immediately in the application delivery controller.
Get the graph image for an application delivery controller service based on the supplied graph type and metric. The available graph types are: 'connections' and 'status', and the available metrics are: 'day', 'week' and 'month'.
This method returns the raw binary image data.
getObject retrieves the SoftLayer_Network_Application_Delivery_Controller object whose ID number corresponds to the ID number of the init parameter passed to the SoftLayer_Network_Application_Delivery_Controller service. You can only retrieve application delivery controllers that are associated with your SoftLayer customer account.
The SoftLayer_Network_Application_Delivery_Controller data type models a single instance of an application delivery controller. Local properties are read only, except for a ''notes'' property, which can be used to describe your application delivery controller service. The type's relational properties provide more information to the service's function and login information to the controller's backend management if advanced view is enabled.
SoftLayer_Network_Application_Delivery_Controller controls a single instance of SoftLayer's application delivery controller offerings. Application delivery controllers are capable of application filtering, layer 4 and layer 7 load balancing, and many other functions. Currently SoftLayer employs them as high power load balancers. Load balancing is accomplished similarly to SoftLayer's other load balancer options, through a collection of virtual IP address interfaces.
Application delivery controllers support an 'advanced' configuration scheme, enabling access directly to the controller's backend management interface. Enable access to this interface via the [SoftLayer_Network_Application_Delivery_Controller::enableAdvancedView](/reference/datatypes/$1/#$2) method in this service. Use the username 'root' and password retrieved from this service along with the management IP address retrieved from this service. Be warned that direct access to the application delivery controller exposes a high degree of functionality. Be careful when directly editing your service to avoid interruption via misconfiguration.
Update the the virtual IP address interface within an application delivery controller based load balancer identified by the ''name'' property in the loadBalancer parameter. You only need to set the properties in the loadBalancer parameter that you wish to change. Any virtual IP properties omitted or left empty are ignored. Changes are reflected immediately in the application delivery controller.
Update the NetScaler VPX License.
This service will create a transaction to update a NetScaler VPX License. After the license is updated the load balancer will reboot in order to apply the newly issued license
The load balancer will be unavailable during the reboot.
