F5 Administering BIG IP

Objective

This two-day course gives network administrators, network operators, and network engineers a functional understanding of the BIG-IP® v11.2 system as it is commonly deployed in an application delivery network. The course 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 lecture, hands-on labs, interactive demonstrations, and discussions.

This course is intended for system and network administrators responsible for installation, setup, configuration, and administration of the BIG-IP LTM system.

Topics covered in this course include:

  • Getting Started with the BIG-IP System
  • Traffic Processing with LTM
  • Secure Network Address Translation (SNATs)
  • Traffic Management Shell (TMSH) and Managing the BIG-IP System
  • Monitors, Network Map, and Configuration State
  • Profile Concepts
  • Session Persistence
  • iApps Concepts
  • Basic BIG-IP Troubleshooting
  • BIG-IP Administration
  • Overview of Other BIG-IP Products (GTM, ASM, APM)
  • Enterprise Manager (EM)
  • High Availability Concepts
  • iRules

At the end of this course, the student should be able to:

  • Start/restart, license, and provision the BIG-IP system;
  • Use the Configuration utility and TMOS Shell (tmsh) to manage BIG-IP resources such as virtual servers, pools, pool members, nodes, profiles, and monitors;
  • Create, restore from, and manage BIG-IP archives;
  • View resource status, availability, and statistical information and use this information to determine how the BIG-IP system is currently processing traffic
  • Perform basic troubleshooting and problem determination activities including using the iHealth diagnostic tool, researching known issues and solutions on AskF5, submitting a problem ticket to F5 Technical Support, and viewing traffic flow using tcpdump;
  • Understand and manage user roles and partitions;
  • Operate two or more BIG-IPs as part of an N+1 high-availability configuration;
  • Use an iApp to deploy an application service;
  • Describe the role of Enterprise Manager in BIG-IP system administration and operation
  • Describe how traffic flows through LTM, GTM, ASM, and APM
  • Describe the role if iRules in affecting traffic behavior

Students should understand:

  • TCP/IP addressing and routing
  • Common elements of WAN and LAN environments

After joining our class the student is ready to sign up for the Basic ADF exam number 101 at a Prometric Pearson Vue Centre.
