CimTrak for F5 BigIP

What We Monitor

F5’s Big-IP is a load balancer / local traffic manager that is used for directing incoming network traffic and web traffic to multiple servers in real time. CimTrak for Network Devices monitors the device configuration for changes, logs the changes, and then notifies the responsible parties of them.

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.
