Virtual Clustered Multi-Processing (vCMP) is a feature of the BIG-IP system that makes it possible for 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.
Before implementing the BIG-IP LTM module within a vCMP guest, verify that you have completed the tasks from the appropriate Viprion Platform Guide. As part of the platform installation, you will have assigned an IP address that provides access to the primary cluster and then licensed the platform.
The tasks involved in implementing the BIG-IP LTM module within a vCMP guest consist of configuring the vCMP host, creating, provisioning, and deploying a guest, and finally using the BIG-IP LTM Configuration Utility to create the required TMOS and LTM objects within the guest.
Use the BIG-IP Configuration utility to view the host properties for all slots on the system or for a single slot. The host properties that you can view are:
