F5 Load Balancer Training Course : Day 3


After the previous day’s “networky” stuff, day 3 was back to some stuff that was more relevant to me. Amongst other things, I got a quick primer on IPv6, which was pretty useful and we looks at iApps and iRules. It looks like I will be writing lots of iRules using TCL to replace the functionality of our Apache reverse proxies. Fun, fun, fun… 🙂

We finished at about 15:00, so I hit the road and managed to do the M25 and M40 in a reasonable time. It wasn’t good, but it could have been a lot worse.

The challenge now is to get to work on Monday and try to start putting some of this stuff into practice before I forget everything. 🙂

Thanks to all the folks at F5 for a good course. Thanks also to the other folks on the course for putting up with my noob questions. 🙂
