Beskrivelse

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.


Topics covered in this course include:


   v13 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, and packet filters)
Deploying application services with iApps
Customizing application delivery with iRules and local traffic policies
 


  ​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.
