Overview: Monitoring the performance of a BIG-IP acceleration application

The BIG-IP's performance reports provide information about page requests, the frequency of those requests, and how well the BIG-IP serviced those requests from cache. Additionally, performance reports provide information about the acceleration application, policy, policy node, HTTP response status, S-code, size range of the response, response object type, and ID of the BIG-IP or browser making the request.

The BIG-IP provides three types of performance reports.

  • Traffic Reports. These reports display the number of requests (hits) received, and responses served, by the BIG-IP.
  • Byte Reports. These reports display the bytes of content that the BIG-IP has sent in response to requests.
  • Response Reports. These reports display the average amount of time it takes the BIG-IP to respond to a request from the client.

You can use these performance reports to evaluate your acceleration policies, adjusting them as required to maximize client access to your applications. The individual performance reports display content according to the persistent parameters that you select for the filter. You can also save performance reports to a specified file type so that you can import them into specific applications.

Note: Enabling performance monitoring for a BIG-IP acceleration application can degrade overall performance and should only be used temporarily.
