I love the fact that their is some tighter integration between SolarWinds and monitoring BigIP LTM's. I was wondering if there are any plans to improve on that monitoring, I what love to see a more streamlined way for monitoring the individual virtual servers closer. This can be done via SNMP & UnDP's however it is quite a lengthy process.
Browsing the the tree on an LTM, you can find the following, which contains a number of different metrics you can poll for:
After you decide the metric you want to poll you have to convert the virtual server name from ascii to decimal, this is the time consuming part.
Orion is already polls for the currently virtual server with it's current integration. So a good amount of the information is there already.
I did a write-up some time ago showing how time consuming the process can be, and all the steps involved.
