    F5 BIG-IP LTM

    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.

    WHAT YOU'LL LEARN

    • BIG-IP initial setup (licensing, provisioning, and network configuration)
    • A review of BIG-IP local traffic configuration objects
    • APM Access Policies, Access Profiles
    • 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
