This course gives network administrators, network operators, and network engineers a functional understanding of the BIG-IP system as it is commonly deployed in an application delivery network. The course introduces students to the BIG-IP system, its configuration objects, how it processes traffic, and how typical administrative and operational activities are performed. The course includes lecture, hands-on labs, interactive demonstrations, and discussions.

 

Topics covered in this course Include:  

 v14.1 Course Topics

Getting started with the BIG-IP system
Traffic processing with BIG-IP Local Traffic Manager (LTM)
Using the TMSH (TMOS Shell) command line interface
Using NATs and SNATs
Monitoring application health and managing object status
Modifying traffic behavior with profiles, including SSL offload and re-encryption
Modifying traffic behavior with persistence, including source address affinity and cookie persistence
Troubleshooting the BIG-IP system, including logging (local, high-speed, and legacy remote logging), and using tcpdump
User roles and administrative partitions
vCMP concepts
Customizing application delivery with iRules

Audience

This course is intended for network administrators, operators, and engineers responsible for managing the normal day-to-day operation and administration of a BIG-IP application delivery network. This course presents the prerequisite knowledge for many other of F5’s BIG-IP instructor-led training courses.

Prerequisites

There are no required F5 prerequisites for this course. The following free web-based training courses, although optional, will be very helpful for any student with limited BIG-IP administration and configuration experience. These courses are available at F5 University:

Getting Started with BIG-IP web-based training
Getting Started with BIG-IP Local Traffic Manager (LTM) web-based training
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
