Can the SILO feature be used for separating the environments in Big IQ?

Hi all,

 

I am working on an existing environment of a few F5 Big IP LTMs and I am onboarding them on Big IQ. Many object names are duplicated and I know that I can create a silo in order to isolate the selected device and fix the situation.

 

So my question is: what if I create a few silos and use them to separate the environments and keep them as they are, instead of fixing the names? It almost looks like when in a silo, the device is not really managed by the Big IQ, is it correct?

 

Thank you in advance.

I'm having the same question. I think the way BigIQ handles the configuration objects is quite far away from reality and as soon as you try to manage dozens of devices in different environments with different requirements you will never ever get everything straight.
