Description

Course Objectives

  • Describe the role of the BIG-IP system as a full proxy device in an application delivery network
  • Set up, start/restart/stop, license, and provision the BIG-IP system out-of-the-box
  • Create a basic network configuration on the BIG-IP system including VLANs and self IPs
  • Use the Configuration utility and TMSH to manage BIG-IP resources such as virtual servers, pools, pool members, nodes, profiles, and monitors
  • Create, restore from, and manage BIG-IP archives
  • View resource status, availability, and statistical information  to determine how the BIG-IP system is currently processing traffic
  • Use profiles to manipulate the way the BIG-IP system processes traffic through a virtual server
  • Perform basic troubleshooting and problem determination activities including using the iHealth diagnostic tool
  • Support, and view traffic flow using TCPDUMP
  • Understand and manage user roles and partitions
  • Describe the role of iRules in affecting traffic behavior

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

Major Course Changes since v12

Addition of a discussion and lab steps on using the new Test Monitor functionality, along with brief discussions of using the new TCPDUMP remote feature and interpreting the meaning of the gray object status indicator. A new lab on using an HTTP profile to insert X-Forwarded-For headers is also available. TMSH commands have been added throughout the labs for those who prefer to work in the command line and not just the Configuration utility.

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
