Advertising Healthy F5 LTM VIPs using BGP
What’s the point? I have come across some environments where combining the capabilities of dynamic routing and the F5 LTM monitoring capabilities provide a worthwhile benefit. Of course, in many (perhaps most) cases, an LTM advertising only healthy and reachable resources via dynamic routing may not be needed since it may be the only place the resources exist. In this case, if the one set of resources goes down, there’s no where else for the traffic to go so there’s no point in taking advantage of this.
