You can use external logging devices to collect log files from BIG-IP® devices for viewing from a web interface launched from the F5® BIG-IQ® Centralized Management system. Currently, only the SevOne Performance Log Appliance (SevOne PLA) is supported. As part of supporting external logging devices, the BIG-IQ Centralized Management system pushes (transfers) BIG-IP device management IP- and self IP address information to the external logging device.
You need to add an external logging device to the management system before you can use it. You add, modify, or remove external logging devices from the management system by selecting.
Once you have added the external logging device, you need to set up authentication with the device so that you can then launch the user interface to manage the device. You perform these tasks by selecting.
