Virtualized Clustered Multi-Processing (vCMP) is a feature of the BIG-IP system that allows you to run multiple instances of the BIG-IP software on a single hardware platform.
Using the following implementation, you can create one guest on a vCMP system, and then, within the guest, configure the basic Local Traffic Manager objects for processing HTTP application traffic: a pool, an HTTP profile, and a standard virtual server. A vCMP guest is a virtual BIG-IP device.
After creating and deploying a vCMP guest, and provisioning the BIG-IP LTM within the guest, you can configure LTM. To configure LTM, you access the guest by logging in to the BIG-IP Configuration utility, using the guest's unique cluster IP address. You can then perform any LTM configuration tasks required.
Using the BIG-IP Configuration utility, you can view the host properties for all slots on the system or for a single slot. The host properties that you can view are:
