irule for bandwidth alert or active connection alert

I'm hoping that someone can help me out with this. Is there a way to write an irule to send out a notification if we reach 10megs throughput? or 11k sessions? just a simple e-mail?


i know it shows up on the performance menu but it would be great to setup like a threshold or notification when it gets to a certain point.



Has anyone ever accomplished this? Or can help?
