BIG-IP® Local Traffic ManagerTM includes a feature known as traffic classes. A traffic class is a feature that you can use when implementing optimization profiles for modules such as the WAN Optimization ModuleTM.
A traffic class allows you to classify traffic according to a set of criteria that you define, such as source and destination IP addresses. In creating the traffic class, you define not only classification criteria, but also a classification ID. Once you have defined the traffic class and assigned the class to a virtual server, Local Traffic Manager associates the classification ID to each traffic flow. In this way, Local Traffic Manager can regulate the flow of traffic based on that classification.
To configure and manage traffic classes, log in to the BIG-IP Configuration utility, and on the Main tab, expand Local Traffic, and click Traffic Classes.
Table 17.1 describes the settings that you can configure for a traffic class.
Specifies a unique name for the traffic class. Traffic class names are case-sensitive and may contain letters, numbers, and underscores (_) only. Reserved keywords are not allowed. This setting is required.
Specifies a source IP address that the system should use to identify traffic belonging to this class. Any traffic originating from this IP address could be subject to the defined rate class.
Specifies a port name or number that the system should use to identify traffic belonging to this class. Any traffic originating from this port could be subject to the defined rate class.
Specifies a destination IP address that the system should use to identify traffic belonging to this class. Any traffic destined for this IP address could be subject to the defined rate class.
Specifies a port name or number that the system should use to identify traffic belonging to this class. Any traffic destined this port could be subject to the defined rate class.
Specifies the IP protocol to be used as a criterion for classifying traffic. Possible values are TCP and UDP. For example, if you specify a value of TCP, traffic coming into the BIG-IP system over TCP could become a member of this class.
