F5 Networks Configuring BIG-IP LTM v12 or v13: Local Traffic Manager

Overview


 ALL COURSE DATES GUARANTEED TO RUN !!!

Provides networking professionals a functional understanding of the BIG-IP LTM v12 system as it is commonly used, as well as an in-depth understanding of advanced features. The course covers installation, configuration, and management of BIG-IP LTM systems. This hands-on course includes lectures, labs, and discussions. 
 
This course is intended for system and network administrators responsible for installation, setup, configuration, and administration of the BIG-IP LTM system.
 
Administering BIG-IP, OSI model, TCP/IP addressing and routing, WAN, LAN environments, and server redundancy concepts; or having achieved TMOS Administration Certification
  • 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
