This course gives network professionals a functional understanding of BIG-IP Local Traffic Manager, introducing students to both commonly used and advanced BIG-IP LTM features and functionality. 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.

Prerequisites

Students must complete one of the following F5 prerequisites before attending this course:
  • Administering BIG-IP instructor-led course
  • F5 Certified BIG-IP Administrator
The following general network technology knowledge and experience are recommended before attending any F5 Global Training Services instructor-led course:
  • OSI model encapsulation
  • Routing and switching
  • Ethernet and ARP
  • TCP/IP concepts
  • IP addressing and subnetting
  • NAT and private IP addressing
  • Default gateway
  • Network firewalls
  • LAN vs. WAN
The following course-specific knowledge and experience is suggested before attending this course:
  • Web application delivery
  • HTTP, HTTPS, FTP and SSH protocols
  • TLS/SSL

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.

Agenda

  • 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, and packet filters)
  • Deploying application services with iApps
  • Customizing application delivery with iRules and local traffic policies
