Known Issues

For this release of the Management Pack for F5 BIG-IP, the following Known Issues/Limitations exist:

  • Old licenses are not supported; the new VMware license is required to use this pack
  • Monitoring is limited to BIG-IP Devices, Local Traffic Manager (LTM), and select Global Traffic Manager (GTM) resources.
  • New users of the Management Pack may encounter issues with the F5 BIG-IP Health Investigation dashboard populating upon initial install. This is a pre-existing issue that occurs when the VM tag initially creates relationships to VMs. If you encounter this issue, we recommend waiting for the tag to populate, then re-starting your vROps system or re-installing the dashboard.
