F5 BIG-IP Extension: What's important?

Monitoring SNMP devices can be rather important to all organizations, in our case it's to keep track of Load Balancer activity. The F5 BIG-IP extension is a great tool that brings in a lot of data. While much of it is useful, it also feels a bit overwhelming! What data do you think is most important to focus on and reduce the scope of all that information?

Hi @bridgettprevidi,

All of them are considered important, but I think the following are the most important requested metrics

System Uptime/Availability
Failover and Sync status
Virtual servers - status/availability
Pools - status/availability
Nodes - status/availability
Profile state
Memory - TMM
Instance CPU
virtual server CPU
Node Monitor status
rule - failures
irules status
Interfaces - status/dropped packets

I think It would be great if the following would be included with the same extension
System certificates expiry
Device License expiry
