Lightboard Lessons: Application Visibility and Reporting
Application Visibility and Reporting (AVR) is a module that lets you analyze performance of web applications. It provides detailed metrics and statistics about application traffic running through the BIG-IP system. AVR allows you to set up an analytics profile that will show you in-depth statistics on various metrics like server latency, page load time, throughput as well as entities on the BIG-IP like Client IP addresses, requested URLs, response codes, user agents, and many more. AVR also has robust notification capabilities that allow internal and external logging, SNMP traps, and email notification. One of our rock star F5 employees, Ken Bocchino, wrote an iApp that utilizes the power of AVR reporting in the Splunk application...really cool stuff! Check out the video below to learn more about AVR and how it can help you gain much-needed visibility over the performance of your web applications.
