Monitoring BIG-IP APM

Figure 1 shows the dedicated BIG-IP APM monitoring model offered by eG Enterprise .

Figure 1 : The layer model of the BIG-IP APM

Every layer of Figure 1 is mapped to a variety of tests which connect to the target APM via SNMP and SSH to collect critical metrics pertaining to its performance. With the help of these metrics, administrators can find quick and accurate answers to the following performance queries:

  • Which access profile is widely used to connect to the target APM?
  • Which access profile is prone to errors?
  • Which connectivity profile imposed maximum workload on the target APM?
  • Which connectivity profile was frequently used to establish connections to transmit/receive raw data and compressed data?
  • How many Citrix sessions were established by each user?
  • Which user established the maximum number of Citrix sessions?
  • How much of data was received/transmitted by each user?
  • How many Citrix sessions were logged out during the last measurement period?
  • How many F5 sessions were established by each user on the target APM?
  • How many sessions were established for each access profile?
  • How many sessions were terminated for each access profile due to reasons such as user logouts, occurrence errors and logouts by the administrator?
  • How many sessions were allowed/denied by the access control policies defined on each access profile?
  • Through which access profile were the maximum number of sessions allowed/denied by the access control policies?
