What is DevCentral? DevCentral is F5’s online user community. It is a collection of technical individuals all looking to learn about, share information about, use and/or explore F5 technology in some fashion or another. DevCentral, as the name implies, specializes in the more development centered technologies, often referred to as F5’s “extension technologies”. This includes things such as iRules, iControl, iApps and TMSH. But don’t let the name fool you, there is ...

F5 is the creator of and home to many different, powerful technologies. We offer some of the most powerful, advanced application delivery technology in the world. As with any advanced technology, however, there are often times terms and names flying around in documentation, publications or online communities that aren’t necessarily part of your daily speech. Until you’re a bit “in the know” some of these things can be confusing or even daunting. As such, we’ve gone ...
On DevCentral we often focus on the out of the box solutions. iRules, iControl, iApps and more are fantastic and exciting technologies, but there's a lot that goes into making an F5 device work before you even get to play with some of those more advanced features. Things like configuring a pool or a virtual server often times get taken for granted on DevCentral, and that is something we'd like to change. The reality is there are many new users coming to the world of F5 all the time, and ...
Well we’ve made it to the end. This is the 10th and final installment of #The101: iRules. So far we’ve talked about everything ranging from the very basics of programming concepts to some more particular iRules type concepts such as events and string manipulation. Hopefully you’ve been following along and garnered some good bits of information along the way. For those that may just be catching the series, or those that could use a refresher, I’ll list out the articles in ...
In this ninth and penultimate installment of #The101: iRules, we’re moving ever closer to equipping you with what I hope will be a solid arsenal of iRules knowledge. With it, the idea is for you to go forth and prosper in the ways of iRules fu. So far we’ve covered a wide range of topics starting from the overtly simple and introductory to things more and more germane directly to iRules as a technology and language. Today’s topic, strings and their manipulation, strikes deeper ...
#The101: iRules was intended to be a journey through the basics of both iRules and programming concepts alike, with the intent to get everyone up to speed on the necessary topics to tackle iRules in all their glory. Whether you’re a complete newbie to scripting or a seasoned veteran, we want everyone to be able to enjoy iRules equally, or at least as near as we can manage. Hopefully the series has been helpful to that end thus far. In case you haven’t been following along, or in the ...
So far in #The101: iRules we’ve covered some pretty varied topics. Everything from a primer on programming terminology to iRules Events and why they’re important has been discussed so far. If you haven’t been following along, or if you need a refresher, here’s the complete list: iRules: Introduction to Programming & TCL Introduction to F5 Technology & Terms Introduction to iRules Events & Priorities Control Structures & Operators Variables In this s...
If you've been following along in the new #The101: iRules series, it's time to add another building block to the framework of what iRules are and can do. If you're new, it would behoove you to start at the beginning and catch up. So far we've covered introductions across the board for programming basics and concepts, F5 terminology and basic technology concepts, the core of what iRules are and why you'd use them, as well as a couple of cornerstone iRules concepts like events ...
So far in the first several installments of #The101: iRules we’ve talked about some solid introduction topics, from programming basics to F5 terminology to covering an introduction of what iRules is as a technology, how it works, and how to make use of it. These introductions are a solid stepping-stone to get people on the same page so that we can delve into iRules without losing people along the way, or so goes the theory. So far we’ve talked about: Introduction to Programming &...
As #The101: iRules steams on we go deeper and deeper into what actually drives iRules as a technology. So far we have covered very basic concepts, from core programming ideas and F5 basic terminology through to what makes iRules unique and useful, when you’d make use of them, etc. This is all-important as a base of knowledge from which we can draw when speaking about the technology, but now it’s time to dig in deeper and start discussing the inner workings of iRules and what makes th...
