After deploying and configuring F5 network gear in your company, your next step will be to monitor these new devices.
Depending on your monitoring solution, integrating your F5 network equipment can range from simple to complex.
Maybe you need to search around for the various MIB files to get the optimal monitoring parameters, or perhaps you have to search on the internet for plugins or templates for your F5 devices.
Not so with our NetEye solution.
With the NetEye implementation you can easily use the attached file archive that contains the service profile for F5 and the necessary plugins.
This service profile contains the most important monitoring checks for F5 devices:
First of all, you need to copy the plugins from the tar archive file to the NetEye plugins directory.
Afterwards, you can simply load the attached service profile by using Architect Monarch in the NetEye Configuration section.
After that, you have to set the correct SNMP authentication on the loaded service checks.
Finally, you can assign this newly loaded service profile to your F5 network devices and start monitoring them.
