How CimTrak for F5 Works
When CimTrak locks a F5 Big-IP for monitoring, it reads the configuration of the device. It calculates a digital signature for the configuration, and stores it in CimTrak’s master repository along with a copy of the configuration. At user-configured intervals, CimTrak reads the contents of the configuration, calculates the digital signature, and compares it to the signature stored in CimTrak’s master repository.
When CimTrak detects a change in the configuration, that configuration and its digital signature is then stored in the master repository. The master repository then logs the detected change and sends notifications to the configured emails and/or configured Syslog services and/or SNMP services.
