This course provides networking professionals a functional understanding of iRules development. The course builds on the foundation of the Administering BIG-IP or Configuring LTM course, demonstrating how to logically plan and write iRules to help monitor and manage common tasks involved with processing traffic on the BIG-IP system. Extensive course labs consist of writing, applying and evaluating the effect of iRules on local traffic. This hands-on course includes lectures, labs, and discussions.

Please note this class is only available through Centriq's partner network. Separate Terms & Conditions will apply to registrations.

 



Audience

This course is intended for system administrators, network administrators and application developers responsible for the customization of traffic flow through a BIG-IP system.
