Description

This course gives network professionals a functional understanding of BIG-IP Local Traffic Manager (LTM), introducing students to both commonly used and advanced LTM features. Incorporating lecture, extensive hands-on labs, and classroom discussion, the course helps students build the well-rounded skill set needed to manage BIG-IP LTM systems as part of a flexible and high performance application delivery network.

Topics covered in this course include:

v12.0 Course Topics

  • BIG-IP initial setup (licensing, provisioning, and network configuration)
  • A review of BIG-IP local traffic configuration objects
  • Using dynamic load balancing methods
  • Modifying traffic behavior with persistence (including SSL, SIP, universal, and destination address affinity persistence)
  • Monitoring application health with Layer 3, Layer 4, and Layer 7 monitors (including transparent, scripted, and external monitors)
  • Processing traffic with virtual servers (including network, forwarding, and reject virtual servers)
  • Processing traffic with SNATs (including SNAT pools and SNATs as listeners)
  • Configuring high availability (including active/standby and N+1 sync failover device groups, connection and persistence mirroring, and sync-only device groups)
  • Modifying traffic behavior with profiles (including advanced HTTP profile options, caching, compression, and OneConnect profiles)
  • Advanced BIG-IP LTM configuration options (including VLAN tagging and trunking, SNMP features, packet filters, and route domains)
  • Deploying application services with iApps
  • Customizing application delivery with iRules and local traffic policies

v11.6 Course Topics

  • Set up the BIG-IP LTM System
  • Load Balancing, including priority group activation and connection limits
  • Persistence concepts, including universal persistence and match across services Monitors, including scripted monitors and managing multiple monitors
  • Profiles, including compression, caching, and F5 acceleration technologies
  • Deploying iApps
  • Highly Availability, including Sync-Failover and Sync-Only device groups, traffic groups, and N+1 concepts
  • Forwarding and network virtual servers, path load balancing, and auto last hop
  • Configuring local traffic policies
  • Implementing SNATs
  • IPv6 and route domains
  • Configuring iRules

Objectives

By the end of this course, the student should be able to use both the Configuration utility, TMSH, and Linux commands to configure and manage BIG-IP LTM systems in an application delivery network. In addition, students should be able to monitor the BIG-IP system to achieve operational efficiency, and establish and maintain high availability infrastructure for critical business applications.
