Monitoring F5 BIG-IP with New Relic Infrastructure

F5's BIG-IP is a family of software and hardware products designed around application availability, access control, and security. The BIG-IP load balancer offering can direct network and application traffic to other servers for better performance.

The New Relic F5 BIG-IP integration collects and sends inventory and metrics from your F5 BIG-IP instance to the New Relic platform, where you can aggregate and visualize key performance metrics. Data is collected at system, application, pool, pool member, virtual server, and node levels.

Virtual server metrics

Track the availability of the BIG-IP virtual servers and how much traffic they are processing.

Pool & pool members

Understand how many members you have in your load-balancer pool, as well as performance metrics related to the number of connections and handled packets.

You need to know what’s happening in your F5 BIG-IP instances

F5 BIG-IP is able to handle a massive load of network connections and direct them to other servers in your environment. The F5 load-balancer sits at the critical path of your network—but what if something goes wrong? You need to have the right monitoring in place.
