    Not sure I understand exactly what you're asking... Are you asking for



    1. A method of monitoring the F5 to determine the pool/node health etc?


    2. Or monitoring the poolmembers to determine their health for the LB?



    If it's 1, checkout the walkF5Stats script in codeshare (, that uses (Mostly) the iControl interface (Which is SOAP). THat should point you in the direction you need. Or you can also use cacti and the cacti plugins (But that uses SNMP not SOAP and XML).
