SyntaxHighlighter.all(); iControl isn’t just SOAP anymore… No, iControl isn’t getting lazy.   While taking it easy is an important part of life, I’m talking about the other kind of REST.   REST, or “REpresentational State Transfer” for you technically inclined, is a style of architectural principals with which you can design web services that focus on a system’s resources.  It also defines how resource states are address...

DevCentral is a lot different now from nearly 8 years since when it was a website on a desktop under my desk.  I was a software architect in the Product Development organization and I took on a side project with Jeff Browning to build a platform that software developers could collaborate on F5 APIs.  It grew slowly, first focusing on iControl and then slowly introducing iRules and other design level topics.  Colin was brought on as the first official member of the “DevCentral Te...
In September, Cisco announced that it was ceasing development and pulling back on sales of its Application Control Engine (ACE) load balancing modules.  Customers of Cisco’s ACE product line will now have to look for a replacement product to solve their load balancing and application delivery needs. One of the first questions that will come up when a customer starts looking into replacement products surrounds the issue of upgradability.  Will the customer be able to import their...

The Problem Application performance testing is a tricky beast.  In the good old days, you would write some code, plop it on a web server and expose it’s IP address to the world and you were ready to roll.  Testing application performance was relatively simple.  You would have your app team do timing on the various components of the application and monitor system resources and response times to see how the application would handle to the normal user and also under load. The user...

Articles in this series: Monitoring Your Network with PRTG - Overview, Installation, and Configuration In my first article in this series, I talked about the PRTG Network Monitor from Paessler and how we decided to use it for our DevCentral migration from our IT datacenter into a cloud provider.  In this article, I’m going to talk about the core of PRTG’s monitoring: it’s sensors. What is a Sensor? As the PRTG folks state: A sensor is the “heart” of the...
A few months back, our team moved DevCentral.f5.com from our corporate datacenter to a cloud service provider.  As part of this project, we were required to take over the tasks previously performed by our IT department.  One of the tasks that fell into my hands was to look at the monitoring and alerting for the heath of the systems in our environment.   These systems included our application tier (application, database, and storage) as well as the F5 network infrastructure (G...
