Overview: Configuring BIG-IP GTM VIPRION systems

You configure BIG-IP Global Traffic Manager (GTM) on VIPRION systems in the same manner that you configure BIG-IP GTM on an appliance, with two notable exceptions.

  • You can access BIG-IP Local Traffic Manager (LTM) iRules from within BIG-IP GTM iRules. You can also access BIG-IP GTM iRules from within BIG-IP LTM iRules.
  • It is important to change the general system configuration for virtual server status.

Configuring dependency for virtual server status

You can configure virtual server status to be dependent only on the timeout value of the monitor associated with the virtual server. This ensures that when the primary blade in a cluster becomes unavailable, the gtmd agent on the new primary blade has time to establish new iQuery connections with and receive updated status from other BIG-IP systems.
Tip: The big3d agent on the new primary blade must be up and functioning within 90 seconds (the timeout value of the BIG-IP monitor).
  1. On the Main tab, click System > Configuration > Global Traffic > General. The General configuration screen opens.
  2. Select Depends on Monitors Only from the Virtual Server Status list.
  3. Click Update.
