Dashboard Pack for Kemp Load Balancers

Dashboard Pack for Kemp Load Balancers

Our latest blog is all about Community power in action, combining a free Management Pack for Kemp Load Balancers written by Daniele Grandini, MVP, with a brand-new Dashboard Pack from a rising star of the Squared Up Community, Andre Schoeman.

Kemp are a popular vendor of Load Balancers (also known as Application Delivery Controllers), offering a cost-effective alternative to the likes of F5 or Citrix Netscaler. Thanks to an open source Management Pack from by Daniele Grandini, you can monitor your Kemp appliances using SCOM, providing a direct line-of-sight into their overall health, as well as surfacing performance information like transfers-per-second and response time, which are crucial to ensuring your application is running effectively.

Now, thanks to the efforts of Andre Schoeman, there’s a Squared Up Dashboard Pack for this MP, containing;

  • A dashboard providing a high-level overview of your Kemp devices, including Dynamic Table visualization, to give you at-a-glance info on their KPIs

The Kemp Load Balancer Dashboard Pack provides a succinct overview for all Kemp devices.The Kemp Load Balancer Dashboard Pack quickly detailed core KPI information.

 

  • Drilldown Perspectives which visualize heath and performance data from the Kemp MP on a per-appliance basis, allowing you to take a detailed look at the health of, for example, the Real Servers and Virtual Servers of an individual appliance.
