Link Controller Setup
I have a LC with three routers and four links L1,L2,L3,L4.
The customer requirement is two load balance outbound and inbound traffic.
1-For the outbound traffic the requirements are
a-To load balance vpn over the three links L1, L2 and L3 “equally”.
b-To load balance all other traffic (web browsing) over the link L4 and if this link reaches its limit, to load balance on the other three links L1, L2, and L3 and use only 1Mbps on each link.
So the question is how I am going to created policy or configure the link controller in this case? Since in the Link Controller “Links” Tab, I can create a link and set the bandwidth or even add cost load balancing.
But how the F5 will distinguish if the link for browsing has reached the limit to use only 1Mbps from each other three links?
2-For inbound traffic:
a-The published website for the customer will be initiated from the outside, so do I need a wide ip and a listener in this case? Or I just create VS with public ip address and direct the traffic to the inside?
3-Moreover, I have initially configured the LC, and bind monitor(icmp_gateway) to the Link but the Link is unavailable due to the monitor failure. i tried to use another monitor but is giving me error “bigip_link from gtmd : no reply from big3d: timed out”. I restarted the big3d service and the Link stays unavailable with the same error.
Kindly I need your assistance.
