In addition to using the Configuration utility, you can choose to configure the WAN Optimization Module from the command line using bigpipe commands. While it is not typically necessary to use the command line interface, some administrators may prefer working from the Linux shell.
Note: F5 Networks recommends configuring WAN optimization from the command line for advanced BIG-IP system users only.
If you do not have physical access to the BIG-IP system on which the WAN Optimization Module is running, you can use an SSH program to connect to the command line interface. You can also use SSH for troubleshooting the WAN Optimization Module.
This chapter lists the commands that you can use to configure the WAN Optimization Module. For additional information, refer to the following:
Online man pages
The BIG-IP system includes online man pages for bigpipe commands and many standard Linux commands. You can access the man pages from the command line.
Bigpipe Utility Reference Guide
This reference document presents details on all of the TMOS-related commands that are available from the command line of the BIG-IP system including how to access them. It provides descriptions of the WAN optimization commands.
After you have logged on to the command line through your terminal emulator, SSH client, or console server, you can run commands on the command line. The BIG-IP system supports configuration of the WAN Optimization Module using bigpipe commands.
Table 8.1 describes commands you can use to configure a WAN Optimization Module from the command line, and refers to locations where you can find comparable configuration procedures using the Configuration utility in this guide.
Configures the data storage used for optimization, including disk I/O operations and optimized page cache. For example, symmetric data deduplication uses this storage space. For details, see Checking the size of deduplication cache.
Configures symmetric data deduplication parameters, which reduce the amount of data that is transferred over the WAN by identifying and removing repetitive data patterns. For details, see Configuring symmetric data deduplication.
Lets you create, modify, display, or delete an iSession profile, required for WAN optimization.The iSession profile specifies compression, connection reuse, deduplication, and port transparency options for traffic that is being optimized. For details, see Customizing the iSession profile.
