Maximum number of routes nearing (IPv4)-f5-all

Vendor: f5

OS: all

Description:
Many devices have a limit for the number of IPv4 routes that can be defined. Indeni will alert prior to the number of routes reaching the limit.

Remediation Steps:
Consider removing certain routes.

How does this work?
This alert logs into the F5 unit via iControl REST and retrieves the configured routes.

Why is this important?
If maximum route entries route has been configured and the limit is reached no more route entries can be added to the system. This alert tracks the number of added routes and warns if the limit is about to, or has been reached.

Without Indeni how would you find this?
An administrator could log into the device, enter TMSH and run the command “show net route” and count the routes manually. The routing information is also available via the web interface in “Network” -> “Routes”.

            It is important that the routing is configured the same for all cluster members of the same cluster. Otherwise there can be downtime in the event of a failover.
        how: |
            This alert uses the F5 iControl REST API to extract the configured routes for the device.
