The BIG-IP's performance reports provide information about page requests, the frequency of those requests, and how well the BIG-IP system 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 system or browser making the request.
The BIG-IP system provides three types of performance reports.
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.
ROI statistics provide you with acceleration data for an application that you can use to determine the benefits of using acceleration, or use to refine acceleration performance. You can email the resultant charts and statistics, either weekly or monthly, as necessary.
You can evaluate the benefits and performance improvements of acceleration functionality for an application by examining ROI Statistics. Acceleration ROI Statistics provide data on compression, caching, minification, inlining, image optimization, and Intelligent Browser Referencing (IBR), which you can assess to determine the current acceleration performance, and, based on those results, refine the acceleration performance.
