Lab Edition = 10 megabits of throughput.


When logged into the system as root, you can find the limit on Virtual Edition this way:
grep Mbps /var/log/tmm

Does anyone know if there are limitations on monitoring and alerting? Specifically SNMP Traps? I have a VE on 11.6.0 that I'm using to develop ASM policies and want to test/tune my alerts before going in to production, and for the life of me it's not sending traps (and I'm definitely generating violations by doing XSS and injection attacks via request intercept with WebScarab).

Thanks to Jonathan from F5 Pro Services that I worked with this week, I now know that local logging of ASM security events is deprecated as of 11.6.

If you have the space in your virtual environment get Splunk, the first 500MB/day is free and you can have this as your logging server.
