What are GTM and LTM?

The Local Traffic Managers (LTM) and Enterprise Load Balancers (ELB) provide load balancing services between two or more servers/applications in the event of a local system failure. Global Traffic Managers (GTM) provide load balancing services between two or more sites or geographic locations.

How does LTM and GTM work together?

How do the GTM & LTM work together? The GTM and LTM can work together or they can be totally independent. If your organization owns both modules it’s usually using them together, and that’s where the real power comes in. They do this via a proprietary protocol called iQuery®.

What are the capabilities of LTM?

Full proxy means full power Because BIG-IP LTM is a full proxy, you can inspect, manage, and report on application traffic entering and exiting your network.

What are the LTM setup steps?

Configuring BIG-IP LTM

  1. Check Prerequisites.
  2. Configure VLANs.
  3. Configure Self IP addresses.
  4. Configure the Default IP route.
  5. Configure SIP Server nodes.
  6. Configure a health monitor.
  7. Configure a server pool.
  8. Add server pool members.

What is the key difference between LTM and GTM?

GTM vs LTM –

Deployment Generally over Cloud or DMZ/ Perimeter Zone in Data Center Generally in DMZ Zone, Production Zone or Database Zone of Data Centers.
High availability options Backup box may be placed at distance geo location for redundancy Backup box needs to be placed in same Data Center and same Vlan.

What is GTM used for?

Google Tag Manager (GTM) is a free tracking tool and management platform that allows the user to add marketing tags, or snippets of code, to your website to track and collect marketing data. GTM allows users to easily implement tracking tags without modifying the code while improving the information gathering process.

What does Big-IP F5 LTM actually do?

F5® BIG-IP® Local Traffic Manager™ (LTM) helps you deliver applications to your users in a reliable, secure, and optimized way. You get the extensibility and flexibility of application services with the programmability you need to manage your physical, virtual, and cloud infrastructure.

What is an intelligent SNAT?

An intelligent SNAT, or iSNAT, is a type of SNAT that causes the BIG-IP system to select a translation address to map to an original client IP address based on any piece of packet data that you specify. The translation addresses are not self IP addresses, and therefore can be virtual IP addresses.

What is the default LTM MGMT port IP address?

Setting the Management IP address By default, the management interface of the VE has an IP address of 192.168. 1.245/24. This is only true if the management interface is not on a network with DHCP server.

How does a GTM work?

The person running the tag manager is able to pick the triggers on the interface. Once the event happens, GTM fires, collects the data, and then it is sent back to Google Analytics. It will also help to manage the tags you have on your website, so that you don’t have to partake in all the extra work.

What GTM means?


Acronym Definition
GTM Go to Meeting
GTM Go to Meeting (cyberspace meeting)
GTM Global Test Market (surveys)
GTM Global Transportation Management (US DoD)

Can a GTM be used with a LTM system?

This expands your load balancing and traffic management capabilities to include the local area network. For this implementation to be successful, you must authorize communications between the LTM and GTM systems.

Can a GTM be added to a BIG IP network?

You can add BIG-IP Local Traffic Manager (LTM) systems to a network in which BIG-IP Global Traffic Manager (GTM) systems are already present. This expands your load balancing and traffic management capabilities to include the local area network.

What’s the difference between GTM and local traffic manager?

“Local” in the name is important, opposed to the GTM, traffic actually flows through the LTM to the servers it balances traffic to. Usually the servers it’s load balancing sit “locally” in the same data center as the LTM, though that is not a requirement.

What’s the difference between GTM and LTM load balancer?

While designing Data Center and Disaster recovery setups, network administrators and designers come across terms – GTM and LTM. Let’s understand what these terms are, their function and how they differ. GTM load balancer balances traffic for application servers across Data Centers.
