On the side of the road in northern Missouri just north of Mark Twain’s stomping grounds, there is a slice of hillside removed just to the side of the highway. In Arkansas, there’s a nondescript field tucked away in a state park. Short of word of mouth and this thing they call the internet, you wouldn’t be any the wiser that buried or surfaced in these two locations are an amazing variety of geodes and diamonds, respectively. In this article series I will explore recent and well-aged gems from the codeshare, highlighting inventive solutions contributed by you, the community. Please join me on this great adventure as we oscillate on the Mohs’ scale of codeshare geekery.

I’ve been careful to focus most entries on community contributed content, but this release 10 days ago is too cool for school, so I’ll make an exception for this F5 contributed Analytics iApp from Ken Bocchino. It is early access with some open items still under development, but this iApp is the outcome of a close partnership with F5 and Splunk to take analytics data from BIG-IP and display the various data points within the Splunk F5 Application. A couple screen shots from the app:

Facility Level Status

This iApp has been tested on BIG-IP versions 11.4 through 12.0. Take a peek at the installation video and then download the iApp! Thanks for checking out this latest catch from the codeshare!
