First look in Statistics menu, you will see multiple metrics shown there, both in the module statistics and performance reports (using v14.1.0 as a reference for the names).
That is because I not sure what you will consider a transaction in the F5.

After knowing what value you are looking for, you can get that via GUI as you found out already, via CLI, API (iControl REST/SOAP).
It all depends if you want to see in the F5 itself, or integrate with another tool. You could also monitor via SNMP, or send SNMP traps out.

There are many options, all depends on how you want to see that.

You mean SSL TPS's? The connects/second can be calculated from the number of connections to the VS's.

In fact there's some cacti templates floating around from a few years back that show this. Or I can dig up some perl scripts if you like.

BigIP makes the stats (counters) available via SNMP, REST and iControl (SOAP).

If you need specific sevone help, you may need to enquire of their support.
