    LTM could do that... It will LB pretty much anything, and has a RAMCache as well.







  • So if i want to study it , what Chapter from LTM Guide should i study


    i know all Topics of Server Load Balancing ( profiles , Irules , Natting , VS , Pools , Load balancing Methods ...... )

    is there something Special for Cache load balancing ?



  • You can use a CARP implementation to load balance proxies:

    Also, you could talk with your F5 partner or SE about potentially using WAM as a forward proxy. RAM cache won't work very well for caching of arbitrary destination web sites.
