F5 telemetry config
I'm trying to configure the F5 telemetry streaming on a Big-IP VE to forward the telemtry data to a Splunk server.
As described in the following article : https://devcentral.f5.com/s/articles/How-I-did-it-Visualizing-Data-with-F5-TS-and-Splunk
I have an issue with the steps 2 and 3 of the "Associate Logging Profiles to Virtual Server" part :
On my VS, I don't have the choice to select an HTTP, TCP or request logging profile, I don't have these parameters.
I don't understand what I am missing. Do I need another module (I only have a licence for the LTM module) ?
I'm relying on my memory so this info might be incomplete -- I believe that these profiles come from AVR module.
AVR is free with every bigip license, and if I'm not wrong it can be provisioned on VE's with minimal memory/disk requirements (I recall that memory/disk requirements for VE's usually depend on module allocation and AVR is always seen as an exception to module number)
Check your licensing & privisioning first, then check if your VS is standard-type (ip forwarding, fastl4 and other types of Virtual Servers might differ in configuration options) and then check if you're exploding "Advanced" configuration options as the guide says, in drop-down menu
EDIT - Adding a bit: profile selection at point 3 requires you to have WAF license. You can skip this if WAF does not concern your configuration IMO.
Hope this helps
