An advertised route is a subnet that can be reached through a iSession connection. After the iSession connection is configured between two BIG-IPs, they automatically exchange advertised route specifications between the endpoints. The local endpoint needs to advertise the subnets to which it is connected so that the remote endpoint can determine the destination addresses for which traffic can be optimized. Advertised routes configured on the local endpoint become remote advertised routes on the remote endpoint; that is, the BIG-IP on the other side of the WAN.
When a BIG-IP device is deployed in a large scale network with large number of servers, and many of them belong to different subnets, manually configuring local optimization subnets can be very time consuming. Subnet Discovery is designed to ease such configuration challenges. With local subnet discovery, instead of requiring manual configuration of local subnets for traffic optimization, the BIG-IP system automatically discovers the local optimization subnet when traffic flows from the client side BIG-IP device to a server-side BIG-IP device.
