Course Topics

This course is created to understanding of underlying principles—from Secure Sockets Layer-based (SSL) Virtual Private Network (VPN) implementation to symmetric and asymmetric acceleration—and can draw on that insight to integrate BIG-IP LTM into existing networks as well as new implementations.

Section 1: Architect an application

  • Given an expected traffic volume, determine the appropriate SNAT configuration
  • Given a scenario, determine the minimum profiles for an application
  • Given an application configuration, determine which functions can be offloaded to the LTM device
  • Given an application configuration, determine which functions can be offloaded to the LTM device
  • Given an application configuration, determine the appropriate profile and persistence options
  • Explain the steps necessary to configure AVR
  • Given a set of reporting requirements, determine the AVR metrics and entities to collect
  • Given a scenario, determine the appropriate monitor type and parameters to use
  • Given a set of parameters, predict an outcome of a monitor status on other LTM device objects
  • Given a set of SSL requirements, determine the appropriate profile options to create or modify in the SSL profile
  • Given a set of application requirements, describe the steps necessary to configure SSL
  • Given a set of application requirements, determine the appropriate virtual server type to use
  • Given a set of application requirements, determine the appropriate virtual server configuration settings
  • Explain the matching order of multiple virtual servers
  • Given a scenario, determine the appropriate load balancing method(s)
