I'm setting up a new bigip box. I setup the interface, pools, virtual servers, etc. for a web site. When I tested it out the following statistics are shown.
                     |  bits  since       |  bits  in prior    |  current
                     |  Oct 14 11:00:14   |  5 seconds         |  time

This is what netstat -rn shows
Kernel IP routing table

127.1.1.0       0.0.0.0         255.255.255.248 U         0 0          0 tmm0
192.168.55.32   0.0.0.0         255.255.255.224 U         0 0          0 internal
10.40.9.0       0.0.0.0         255.255.255.0   U         0 0          0 eth0
127.2.0.0       0.0.0.0         255.255.255.0   U         0 0          0 eth0
192.168.59.0    0.0.0.0         255.255.255.0   U         0 0          0 external
127.0.0.0       -               255.0.0.0       !         - -          - -
0.0.0.0         10.40.9.27      0.0.0.0         UG        0 0          0 eth0

So here are my questions.
1. What is my problem? Lets keep it specific to the problem described above. :)
2. Does the netstat -rn command need a gateway defined or is it sufficient to just have the interface defined?

Thanks in advanced.

The problem was with the node/server. It didn't have a proper default route. Making the default route point to the floating ip of the f5 fixed the problem. I'll ask community support to close the question.
