This template has been tested with the following versions:

  • F5 BIG-IP LTM 6400 software 9.4.8 Build 396.1 Hotfix HF3

Known Issues

  • Interface Statistics Graph: Management interface (mgt) is sometime unavailable because it is not listed F5 OIDs (.
  • HTTP request per Method: sysHttpStatGetReqs (. doesn't seem to be incremented for all HTTP GET requests (ie: “HTTP 304” doesn't increment the get counter). However this problem doesn't exist with sysHttpStatNumberReqs(. which cause empty spaces in the graph.

This template is based on from Cacti's Forum. Special thanks to Terje Gravvold for the first original template and to citizen_elah, BSOD2600, matibut14, hamish (and maybe others) for all the contributions. From this base, I've added dozens of new graph templates and made many modifications in an attempt to standardize the whole template. Later (2010-09-06), I saw interesting graph templates on F5 DevCentral that have inspired to create new graph templates (HTTP Requests/Responses per Version) and a new data query (ltmPoolStatEntry).
