BIG-IP bandwidth throttling
Posted on 2006-04-13
We're doing some load testing and we have 2 servers in front of our BIG-IP which are eventually to be load balanced, however right now we're testing each individual machine with the usage of www1.domain.com and www2. pointing to 2 different VIPs.
Where within our configuration can we look at what our BIG-IP's bandwidth throttle is set to, and if we have a bandwidth throttle enabled? I understand there is an optional component for this device that allows for this to be controlled.
We're attempting to load test with Microsoft Application Test Center and we're getting mixed results depending on where within our network we're testing from, so we'd like to see if our load balancer is trying to cap us somehow......
If there is no bandwidth throttle set, which we don't recall setting, is there a way to find out if there is a default that this device is set to? Are there any other areas within this device that I can look at to see? We have 4 pools - one pool for each machine, and then 1 pool that both machines are members of.
