F5 Administering & Configuring BIG-IP Local Traffic Manager (LTM)

The Administering component introduces students to the BIG-IP system, its configuration objects, how it processes traffic, and how typical administrative and operational activities are performed. The course includes lectures, hands-on labs, interactive demonstrations and discussions with emphasis on real work applications. The Configuring component provides an in-depth understanding of advanced features. This course covers the installation, configuration, and management of BIG-IP LTM systems.


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.


  • 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 behavior with profiles
  • 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
  • Always-On Management (AOM)
  • User roles and administrative partitions
  • vCMP concepts
  • Customizing 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 de-vice groups, connection and persistence mirroring, and sync-only device groups)
  • Deploying application services with iApps
