Expose Key F5 BIG-IP Performance Metrics in vRealize Operations

by bluemedora_editor on October 6, 2015

Blue Medora announced the release of its new vRealize Operations Management Pack for F5 BIG-IP today. The Management Pack extends vRealize Operations’ monitoring, alerting, capacity planning, and reporting capabilities to F5 BIG-IP and enables predictive analytics for virtualized as well as non-virtualized F5 BIG-IP server landscapes. 

With the Management Pack for F5 BIG-IP, administrators are able to manage, monitor, and troubleshoot their entire F5 BIG-IP environment within a single console. The Management Pack for F5 BIG-IP monitors F5 BIG-IP systems remotely. It connects through the F5 BIG-IP iControl REST API to retrieve data regarding F5 BIG-IP performance and their systems.

Key features of the new Management Pack include:

  • Aggregated monitoring of BIG-IP to provide one-stop viewing of health and performance from dashboards, views, and alerts across the entire F5 BIG-IP environment.
  • Managed relationships to the VMware virtual layer, which provide visibility into load balanced applications and host health and performance. Allowing for faster identification of root cause issues.
  • Visibility into F5 iApps® application service monitoring to provide calculated client and server side network performance.
  • Smart alerting for cluster failover, certificate expiration, and BIG-IP LTM component health and other potential concerns.
  • BIG-IP system planning through vRealize Operations Manager capacity definitions and projects around core metrics (CPU, Memory, Disk).



In turn, you can gain insight into F5 BIG-IP performance and simplify troubleshooting in the process. As a result, you can ensure that the health and availability of your workloads are operating at peak performance.
