Configuring APM with poolmember (Experimental)

Hi All/DC Experts,

 

Have you tried to configure APM with poolmember?

 

The reason why I am asking this, is that just want users to access f5 and they will load balanced them in different f5 also.

 

Ex f51 has LTM+GTM+APM f52 has APM+LTM f53 has LTM+APM

 

f51 will load balance requesting in f52 and f53.

 

Is this possible?

 

Thanks.

  • Should be perfectly possible.

     

    You could do this by either performing a Pool Assign in the VPE and differentiate who gets which pool based on whatever logic you like. Or if you just want to use a default pool in LTM, you could just leave the end of your access policy without any assignments and it will make a normal load balancing decision if they pass your authentication/checks etc.

     

    So for your scenario you would have something like....

     

    F5:1 has Virtual Server with Access policy with AD auth step. If AD auth passes, proceed to default pool which contains Virtual Server IP's from F5:2 and F5:3.

     

    Alternatively.... F5:1 has Virtual Server with Access policy with AD auth step. AD Query is then performed. If user is member of GroupA, assign Pool containing VS's from F5:2. If user is member of GroupB, assign Pool containing VS's from F5:3.

     

    This does kind of depend on what your users are actually doing though.
