When you manage BIG-IP® devices that load balance SSL traffic, you must monitor both their SSL traffic and SSL system certificates. Traffic certificates are server certificates that a device uses for traffic management tasks. System certificates are the web certificates that allow client systems to log in to the BIG-IP Configuration utility.
BIG-IQ® imports the certificates for every managed BIG-IP device you discover. This makes it easy to monitor the expiration dates all of your devices' SSL certificates from one location.
You can also:
You must configure a DNS server before you can specify an SMTP server.
You must have discovered at least one device before any certificates display in the Certificate Management inventory.
You must also set up SMTP to receive notifications for alerts.
