Traffic Classes

About traffic classes

BIG-IP® Local Traffic Manager™ 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 Application Acceleration Manager™.

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.

When attempting to match traffic flows to a traffic class, Local Traffic Manager uses the most specific match possible.

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.
