Course Details


Course Code: LTM

Duration: 5 Days



Students should understand TCP/IP addressing and routing . However, no prior F5 experience required.

Course Description:

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.

Intended Audience:

This course is intended for network administrators, network operators and network engineers with no or minimal experience with F5 who would be responsible for installation and set up of BIG-IP LTM systems.

Course Outline:

  • Getting started with the BIG-IP system & initial setup (licensing, provisioning, and network configuration)
  • Traffic processing with LTM and SNATs
  • Using the Traffic Management Shell (tmsh) command line interface
  • Using NATs and SNATs
  • Monitoring application health and managing object status
  • Modifying traffic behaviour with profiles
  • Modifying traffic behaviour 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
  • Always-On Management (AOM)
  • User roles and administrative partitions
  • vCMP concepts 
  • Customising application delivery with iRules
  • A review of BIG-IP local traffic configuration objects
  • Using dynamic load balancing methods
  • Monitoring application health with Layer 3, Layer 4, and Layer 7 monitors
  • Processing traffic with virtual servers
  • Configuring high availability (including active/standby and N+1 sync failover device groups, connection and persistence mirroring, and sync-only device groups)
  • Deploying application services with iApps
  • Customising application delivery with iRules and local traffic policies
