Level: Intermediate

This F5 BIG-IP LTM training 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.

Key Features of this F5 BIG-IP LTM Training:

  • Choose from in-person or online instructor-led training

You Will Learn How To:

  • Back up the BIG-IP system configuration for safekeeping
  • Configure virtual servers, pools, monitors, profiles, and persistence objects
  • Test and verify application delivery through the BIG-IP system using local traffic statistics
  • Configure priority group activation on a load balancing pool to allow servers to be activated only as needed to process traffic
  • Compare and contrast member-based and node-based dynamic load balancing methods
  • Configure connection limits to place a threshold on traffic volume to particular pool members and nodes
  • Differentiate between cookie, SSL, SIP, universal, and destination address affinity persistence, and describe use cases for each
  • Describe the three Match Across Services persistence options and use cases for each
  • Configure health monitors to appropriately monitor application delivery through a BIG-IP system
  • Configure different types of virtual services to support different types of traffic processing through a BIG-IP system
  • Configure different types of SNATs to support routing of traffic through a BIG-IP system
  • Configure VLAN tagging and trunking
  • Restrict administrative and application traffic through the BIG-IP system using packet filters, port lockdown, and virtual server settings
  • Configure SNMP alerts and traps in support of remote monitoring of the BIG-IP system
  • Use an F5-supplied iApp template to deploy and manage a website application service
  • Use iRules and local traffic policies appropriately to customize application delivery through the BIG-IP system
