Welcome to f5-conx-core

f5-conx-core is a project to abstract all the API functionality developed for the vscode-f5 extension to be used in other projects.

This project is based on JavaScript, but written in TypeScript and utilizes JSdoc to provide built in documentation of functionality, inputs, and outputs.


  • standardize all F5 HTTP REST calls

    • auth token/provider management
    • standard async/job monitoring
    • provide connection timing information for analytics/telemtry
    • file upload/download functionality
    • tmos meta data and ATC service discovery/mgmt
    • ATC version mgmt (from github)
    • ATC RPM install/uninstall
    • ATC usage (fast/as3/do/ts/cf)
    • UCS/QKVIEW management
  • standardize all external HTTP rest calls

    • custom user-agent to identify calls made with this project
    • file downloads
    • internet proxy support (pending/in-progress)
  • IPv6 support (pending/in-progress)

  • standard file cache location

  • standard logging functionality

  • NIM Support

    • REST HTTP connectivity over SSL with basic auth
    • funtions for inventory/scan usage


http-timer for axios requests


The above plugin adds the following timings object to the response of axios

export interface Timings {
    start: number;
    socket?: number;
    lookup?: number;
    connect?: number;
    secureConnect?: number;
    upload?: number;
    response?: number;
    end?: number;
    error?: number;
    abort?: number;
    phases: {
        wait?: number;
        dns?: number;
        tcp?: number;
        tls?: number;
        request?: number;
        firstByte?: number;
        download?: number;
        total?: number;

simplified HTTP Response type including the timings

export type HttpResponse = {
    data?: unknown;
    headers?: unknown;
    status: number;
    statusText?: string;
    request?: {
        url: string;
        method: string;
        headers: unknown;
        protocol: string;
        timings: Timings;
        data?: unknown;

Using these timings we can log and provide stats about what devices (mainly f5) are responding slower than others or a gathered base line (telemetry/analytics)
