Telemetry Streaming (TS) enables you to declaratively aggregate, normalize, and forward statistics and events from the BIG-IP to a consumer application. Telemetry Streaming is an iControl LX Extension delivered as a TMOS-independent RPM file, and uses a declarative model, meaning you provide a JSON declaration rather than a set of imperative commands. To use Telemetry Streaming, you POST a single JSON declaration to Telemetry Streaming’s declarative REST API endpoint.
