I have a requirement whether the application owner wants to know the connections/no of hits for their particular Virtual server hosted on F5 for the previous week ? Is it possible to get this data somewhere ?
The VS statistics which i am aware is where we get the current, maximum and overall total connections details.
Would like to know if there any possibility to check previous/past date connection statistics?
I guess you don't want to give access to the GUI to the application owner ? From my experience, default ltm statistics do not give you this granularity. Maybe AVR could be a way if you have the licence.
If not, you could regurlarly make call to the VS statistics with rest API like explain here : https://support.f5.com/csp/article/K17283308#vs_stats
From there it is possible to calculate a delta and them trace when connections arrived, it will require a bit more work of course.
Well there's one more way which I have come across.
If we have the AVR module provisioned in F5 device then we can get the just go to Statistics ›› Analytics : Virtual Servers : Traffic Details : Connections. And filter the VS statistics and choose the parameters that you need (Device Group, View By, Time Period, Measurement, and Chart type)
