CeBIT - F5 launches load balance overview tool

F5 Networks has launched a network management tool that allows centralised monitoring of its IP traffic management devices.

IControl Services Manager (iSM) software allows administrators to remotely configure and manage F5's IP Application Switches. Configuration changes, backups, reporting and monitoring of the load- balance devices can be managed through a central interface, Michael Frohn, general manager for Central Europe said at the CeBIT trade fair in Hanover.

Interaction with, and data collection from, the devices is encrypted to ensure security, said Frohn. "Analysing packets and directing them while they remain encrypted is fairly unique, I think," he said.

The iControl Service Manager can control up to 24 devices.
