Suppose you have a VIP with 10 servers bound to it. All 10 are passing health checks but five of the servers are not taking any traffic. How would you troubleshoot this? Thank you.

Can you post the Netscaler config, please ?
Compare all servers - fw configuration on servers
Is there additional device between clients and servers ?

in addition to this you can turn on VIP logging (it is syslog logging) and forward syslog messages to your syslog server if you have.
You can turn on the freeware syslog server in a minute  - Free KiWi Syslog - http://www.solarwinds.com/free-tools/kiwi-free-syslog-server

I got into the office and looking at the GUI I actually see traffic to the servers in question. So not sure what the fuss was about. Anyhow - thank you for noting that VIP syslogging is available. I would have looked into that next.
