Default Dashboard data from API sources? ie F5?

I'm trying to put together a dashboard used for on-demand critical device monitoring. For example, I have a map that consists of our critical networking devices that our retail locations VPN to. On the same map has the backend datafarm infrastructure for transaction processing.

I'd like to have a dashboard of the topology, with simple SNMP polls from the F5 (traffic, throughput, connections, etc), as well as the IPSec VPN counts on the firewall, etc. This would allow us the ability to pull up the live topology and on a single pain of glass pull in relevant and detailed information from our critical infrastructure.

I'm unsure how to pull these assumingly standard SNMP requests from the devices, and then map them to the dashboard. Any suggestions, hints/tips, etc? API to get more info from the F5's?

Hi,
As you mentioned that you can get those information via SNMP right? so that, we can utilize customized Qapps to obtain SNMP data from the device. Then create a customized Dashboard to call the Qapps you created.

We have two options available to you to help you achieve your requirements.
The first is working with our Professional Services team to design, build and customize automations to meet your use-case requirements. *You can find further information on our services offered here: https://www.netbraintech.com/advanced-services/
This is a paid for service which your Account Manager can provide pricing on. Is this something you would like to engage with us to scope further?

Alternatively, we provide relevant trainings and documents below that will help allow you to build the automation yourself.
Creating a Qapp:*https://www.netbraintech.com/ftp/IE7...ing-a-qapp.htm
NetBrain Live Training:*https://www.netbraintech.com/resources/live-training/* - We recommend the ‘Power User’ training courses.
Power Training Recordings:*https://nbu.netbraintech.com/#/catalog*- you can find recordings of our training here in case you are unable to attend them live.
