F5 AppWorld 2024 session proposal deadline extended to Friday, December 8th!
Hello every body,
I have a question about the F5-big ip license, the license is divided over the several TMM's
What metrics I have to monitor to see if the TMM is not getting over the license?
I saw that it's possible to configure a threshold on the device it self, and that you than get a Warning in the error log.
But we want to monitor the device with a Performance Tool.
Not sure if this is for a VE license or some other license but I wrote a health check for VE licenses for a company called Indeni a few years ago. When I did that check I calculated the limit of the device using a script by following this article:
Then we polled the device using REST but you should be able to do this with SNMP too using Zabbix/Prometheus or whatever platform you use to warn you when the limit is approaching.
Maybe also review the BIG-IQ license manager that is free for use:
