Beacon Getting Started

This guide walks through creating an Application within F5 Beacon to gain a single view into its health, status, and history. You will take an application with distributed components such as DNS, API Gateway, Data, Middleware, and other Services and then combine them into a single logical entity. You will then begin to ingest data into F5 Beacon and associate that data with the different application components.
