As part of work, I need to keep up with certification exams and stay current. While I dislike exams, it’s part of the job and I do learn new things especially during the exam when I stumble upon a question that forces me to learn something and may even cost me the passing mark.
The LTM-B is the second part exam, while I originally took it a while back, I was up for re-certification and had my notes from back then that I review.
To note the exam is based on 12.2, so keep that in mind as some of the questions are dated and newer released fix the issues presented.
Some things to know:
- Alerting and reporting
- iRules – you should have a good understanding of TCL and the event model used on F5
- HTTP and headers
- How connections flow and persistence, especially cookies
Might be worthwhile reading the old documentation from 12.2 and not the newer ones as the software is evolving quite a bit now.
