Hi,

 

Why am I not able to get out for {total-client-side-conns total-server-side-conns} on Version-13.1.0.1 yet I am able to get the output on Version-12.1.0? Is it possible to have Version-13.1.0.1 giving the output?

Hello Lee,

I've tried this in my lab running version 13.1.3.6.

 

The following values can be used as measures:

Values: avg-client-side-concurrent-conns max-server-side-concurrent-conns avg-server-side-concurrent-conns requests client-side-bits-in server-side-bits-in client-side-bits-out server-side-bits-out client-side-conns server-side-conns client-side-packets-in server-side-packets-in client-side-packets-out server-side-packets-out hw-syncookies syncookies hw-syncookies-accepts syncookies-accepts max-client-side-concurrent-conns syncookies-rejects

 

Using client-side-conns and server-side-conns I've had an output pretty similar to yours.

 

 

root@(bigip)(cfg-sync Standalone)(Active)(/Common)(tmos)# show analytics virtual report view-by virtual measures { client-side-conns server-side-conns } range now--now-1h

Thanks for responding CA,

 

Yes, I had seen "client-side-conns and server-side-conns "...... My concern however was whether this gives same output as "total-client-side-conns and total-server-side-conns". Is the logic behind these 2 options the same? See outputs below, there is a huge difference in the output values which makes me wonder if they are calculating the same thing... Is there a way to replicate logic behind "total-client-side-conns and total-server-side-conns" onto Version-13.1.0.1?

Thinking about it, it's likely that "client/server conns" shows current active connections rather than total.

 

I've tried to retrieve the info that would be "total" connection when looking at Module Statistics > Local Traffic in GUI and I wasn't able to with available metrics, as well.

This info might be somewhere in TCP profiles as well however, but I wasn't able to differenciate it by VS.

Okay, noted. Thanks. If there would be a way of adding the "total-client-side-conns and total-server-side-conns" options in Version-13.1.0.1, guess that would work. Maybe a way to add it in the configuration or something of the sort.
