Virtual Server placement with LTM
We have traditionally located LTM virtual server IPs on the network associated with the outside interface of our LTMs.
I'm wondering if there is any reason that the virtual server IPs shouldn't exist on the Inside Network or whatever other networks exist on the other LTM interfaces?
The advantage of this would seem to be that servers on the inside network(s) can then access virtual servers without having to traverse the LTM. Or maybe it doesn't matter since in my original example internal servers could reach the Virtual Server network via a route on the F5?
Or yet again maybe it's better to have a 3rd network that only the F5 can reach that hosts all the virtual servers:
F5-[Virtual Server Network]
Or again maybe it just doesn't matter?
Thanks in advance for any comments/suggestions.
