Automation:

Although there can potentially be multiple steps to whatever ScaleN cluster you deploy, ideally this can all be automated. iControl is F5’s powerful API to help automate the configuration and manageability of BIG-IP devices can help address this. iConrol has both SOAP and REST methods. In this example, we use the latest python library called bigsuds which leverages the more mature SOAP interface.
