F5 Networks - Configuring BIG-IP Application Acceleration Manager (AAM) V11.X


WebAccelerator is a one day course, designed for customers running the WebAccelerator Module on TMOS™ and is designed to help network professionals improve web site customer experience.

Using lectures and hands-on exercises, participants gain real-time experience setting up and configuring the necessary portions of the Local Traffic Manager (LTM) system as well as typical WebAccelerator Module settings. From the LTM framework, these settings include pools, profiles and virtual servers.
