IN my Customer environment , we need to capture Citrix traffic analysis in DCRUM.
I am attaching a simple flow diagram of all the components present.
I can see that we can Install TCAM agent only on Xenapp servers.
But to capture the traffic on other components like
1) Requests incoming to Storefront
2) requests incoming to Zone Data collector
is there a possibility to install TCAM on these machines as well or do we need to SPAN the traffic in front of each component
Note: The IP being forwarded beyond Netscalar are only SIP(Subnet IP) and not exact client IP

Piecing together the full user experience would include:
