BIG-IP LTM VE - BIG-IP 10.2.2 Build 763.3 Final

Some Graphs does not get input:

so it seems the OIDs are right ?!

Hmm, I suspect this will be a cacti version problem since the templates were developed on 0.87. But what problem is it causing with your graphs?

Just found this now, thanks for the hard work you put into this!

I've made a small modification to your f5_bigip_ltm_member.xml file to fix your issue with the following:
"The pool member graphs display IP addresses in HEX and this is UGLY. The only workaround is to change the graph names to something sensible after creation."

Basically, uses a REGEX on the OID to pull the address, instead of the value the OID returns.
Code:
                <ltmPoolMemberAddress>
                        <name>Address</name>
                        <method>walk</method>
                        <source>OID/REGEXP:^.*\.(.*\..*\..*\..*\..*)$</source>
                        <direction>input</direction>
                        <oid>.1.3.6.1.4.1.3375.2.2.5.4.3.1.3</oid>
                </ltmPoolMemberAddress>

Great solution, thanks. Shame it won't work on the pool and vs stats :cry:

We have two units running active/passive here and there are times when they are flipped for maintenance. Has anyone figured out a way pull from both and perhaps create one set of graphs?

Not sure about your setup but we have 2 units and can poll both independently on their management IPs.
You can combine the graphs with the Aggregate plugin from Gandalf.

Great template.
Can we please get this template to on the official template site?
Also can you please update your zip file to include Soup's suggestion regarding IP address?
Also is it possible to extract pool members' "node name" and use that instead of IP?
Thank you.

I think there's a bug in "F5 BigIP - Global - Traffic - Client" and "F5 BigIP - Global - Traffic - Server" graphs.
Numbers on the graph do not match numbers in the legend below the graph. See attached screenshot.

Most likely the CDEF turn bytes in to bits is missing from the legend items

When I get a chance I'll check and reupload.

I noticed another problem when I look at different predefined time period graphs.
B 1 min AVERAGE, MAX from 0-2 months (1 min poll) - graph shows 24 hours
B 5 min AVERAGE, MAX from 2-12 months (1 min poll) - graph shows less then 1 year.
B 1 day AVERAGE, MAX from 3-20 years (1 min poll) 20 years? I think that's overkill :)

You weren't kidding when you said these rrd files are large..12-18MB per file, ~1.8GB per host.. dang :-?

That's two different things .. 0-2 months is how much data is stored in the .rrd before consolidation to the next level
What time range is displayed is by default is not an rrd setting, it's a cacti settings set by 'timespan' in the RRA - you can change this field as you like without effecting the stored data, but not the others

Yeh a little too large, when I update there will be a new set of smaller RRA's - still with much more history than the cacti defaults.

I've uploaded a new version (host template and snmp queries) with most of the patches mentioned in the thread.

In particular worth mentioning I've added a new set of RRA's, set 'C' that won't product rrd files as large as the 'B' set. You can use these or select your own when you import but I would recommend them if use 1 minute polling.
