This course uses lectures and hands-on exercises to give participants real-time experience in configuring and using the BIG-IQ® product. Students are introduced to BIG-IQ, its interface, and its various functionality. We first look at administering and operating the BIG-IQ system itself, then detail how it is used to remotely manage BIG-IP devices running BIG-IP Local Traffic Manager (LTM). We then look configuring a BIG-IQ Data Collection Device (DCD) system and see how it is used for the remote storage and examination of BIG-IP log events and statistics.
