This 3 day 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. This course is intended for system and network administrators responsible for installation, setup, configuration, and administration of the BIG-IP LTM system.
IMPORTANT INFORMATION: Students must complete one of the following F5 prerequisites before attending this course:
F5 have advised that with the introduction of v13 there is no longer any overlap between the BIG-IP Admin course and the Configuring LTM course. This has started to present many issues for delegates attending the LTM course without having sufficient BIG-IP Admin skills. To help solve this F5 US has brought out a BIG-IP Admin exam which can be taken before attending the LTM course. Indeed, this test should be taken by anyone wanting to attend any of the F5 specialist classes (DNS, APM, ASM, AFM etc.) if they have not attended the BIG-IP Admin or LTM class. Although this is not mandatory, F5 would like to stress the importance of anyone attending F5 specialist classes if they have not attended an Admin class or passed the test below with 70% or greater. Obviously, a 201 BIG-IP Administrator exam certification is an instant prerequisite.
The following free web-based courses, although optional, will be very helpful for any student with limited BIG-IP administration and configuration experience:
The following general network technology knowledge and experience are recommended before attending any F5 Global Training Services instructor-led course:
The following course-specific knowledge and experience is suggested before attending this course:
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.
