Configuring BIG-IP LTM: Local Traffic Manager (TRG-BIG-LTM-CFG-3)

Course Description Schedule
 

Course Overview

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.

Who should attend

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:

The following free web-based 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

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

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

Course Objectives

By the end of this course, the student should be able to use both the Configuration utility, TMSH, and Linux commands to configure and manage BIG-IP LTM systems in an application delivery network. In addition, students should be able to monitor the BIG-IP system to achieve operational efficiency, and establish and maintain high availability infrastructure for critical business applications.

Course Content

  • 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
  • Configure the BIG-IP to detect and mitigate some common attacks at the network and application layers using LTM features such as SYN check, eviction policies, iRules and Local Traffic Policies
