I'm trying to provide my colleagues some visibility over their own services, through statistics provided by AVR module, such as different URLs, different visitors, etc.... However, I can't find an easy way to do it:
So far, the only way I found was to provide them guest user accounts on the bigip, and deal with the whole management interface directly 😞
Did I miss something ?
You can limit guest account access and educate the user.
Option 2: High Speed Logging and send all logs to external log management device such as Splunk, sys-logs, etc. High Speed Logging was designed to be a high volume, low overhead logging mechanism. HSL supports logging via TCP or UDP. Informal testing has shown CPU and memory utilization for HSL to be very low (<10% CPU, almost no additional memory utilization).
Note: AVR module is cpu intensive.
Thanks for your answer.
We already use HSL for exportings logs, and we use them for debugging and high-level statistics, such as access count. However, I was more interested by statistics difficult to compute from logs, such as simultaneous connections count, or bandwidth usage. AVR seems a better option here.
