About SSL certificate monitoring
When you manage BIG-IP® devices that load balance SSL traffic, you must monitor both their SSL traffic and SSL system certificates. Traffic certificates are server certificates that a device uses for traffic management tasks. System certificates are the web certificates that allow client systems to log in to the BIG-IP Configuration utility.
BIG-IQ® Device populates the Certificates panel with details about each certificate on every managed BIG-IP device you discover. This makes it easy to monitor the expiration dates all of your devices' SSL certificates from one location.
Monitoring SSL certificate expiration dates
- Log in to BIG-IQ Device with your administrator user name and password.
- At the top of the screen, click Configuration.
Review the Certificates panel.
A yellow icon appears next to any SSL certificates that are either within 30 days of expiring, or have already expired.
- Click the gear icon next to an SSL certificate to view its properties.
