About configuration synchronization

Configuration synchronization ensures the rapid distribution of BIG-IP® Global Traffic Manager™ (GTM) settings to other BIG-IP systems that belong to the same synchronization group. A synchronization group might contain both BIG-IP GTM and BIG-IP® Link Controller™ systems.

Configuration synchronization occurs in the following manner:

  • When a change is made to a BIG-IP GTM configuration, the system broadcasts the change to the other systems in the configuration synchronization group.
  • When a configuration synchronization is in progress, the process must either complete or timeout, before another configuration synchronization can occur.

About NTP servers and GTM configuration synchronization

The Network Time Protocol (NTP) servers that BIG-IP GTM references ensure that each system in a synchronization group is referencing the same time when verifying configuration file timestamps.
