FAQ: How should I plan for my Distributed Cloud AIP resource consumption?

F5 Distributed Cloud App Infrastructure Protection (AIP) is a responsive application. Distributed Cloud AIP uses minimal system resources when host activity is normal. However, during a host’s busy periods, which generate an influx of events, Distributed Cloud AIP ramps up its monitoring and logging activities to gather and process those events. This temporarily increases the system resources that Distributed Cloud AIP uses.

If your typical resource load is high, such as 90% or more, then during busy periods on the host, Distributed Cloud AIP cannot fully ramp up to deliver complete traceability of events. In this situation, Distributed Cloud AIP may disconnect or not provide full coverage.

In your resource load estimates for the host, please plan for resource ramp-ups from Distributed Cloud AIP during busy periods.
