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.
 
Course Objectives
  • 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 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
  • Establish device trust and configure an active/standby pair in support of high availability
  • Configure and manage a sync-failover device group with more than two members
  • Configure stateful failover using connection mirroring and persistence mirroring
  • 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
  • Develop a simple iApp template
  • Use iRules and local traffic policies appropriately to customize application delivery through the BIG-IP system
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 connection and persistence mirroring)
  • Modifying traffic behavior with profiles (including TCP profiles, advanced HTTP profile options, caching, compression, and OneConnect profiles)
  • Advanced BIG-IP LTM configuration options (including VLAN tagging and trunking, SNMP features, packet filters, and route domains)
  • Deploying application services with iApps
  • Customizing application delivery with iRules and local traffic policies
Major Course Changes since v12
Configuring BIG-IP LTM v13.1 presents much of the same content as v12, though TMSH commands have been added throughout for those who prefer to work in the command bash and not just the configuration utility. Removed the labs on IPv6, Active/Active, and N+1; also removed the discussion of SNAT Auto Map. A brief introduction to working with route domains has been added, along with a discussion to the new built-in TCP profiles and their performance benefits.
 
Audience
This course is intended for system and network administrators responsible for installation, setup, configuration, and administration of the BIG-IP LTM system.
 
Prerequisites
Students must complete one of the following F5 prerequisites before attending this course:
  • Administering BIG-IP instructor-led course

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

The following course-specific knowledge and experience is suggested before attending this course:

  • Web application delivery
  • HTTP, HTTPS, FTP and SSH protocols
  • TLS/SSL
