F5-BIG-VE-LAB license

Hi there,

I wonder what's actually licensed in F5-BIG-VE-LAB. Is it just LTM, or is ist all VE modules APM, ASM and GTM (as I was told by the distributor)? Furthermore: What are the exact limitations (functionality) of the LAB license?

Many Thanks!

Regards
Kurt

hi guys,

back to limitations...

I know the Lab VE will allow you to enable all modules 11.4 as long as you assign enough resource to the guest regarding RAM but actual limitations?...

APM = 10 users (and OFC no OAM ;) ) LTM = 10mbit throughput (appliance wide?) ASM = refer to LTM throughput? AAM = as above? GTM = as above plus 1? AFM = as above plus 2?? CGNAT = 3 PSM = 4 PEM = 5 LC = err 6!

Also does this include IPI/SWG/URL subs?

I suppose to be blunt is there a definitive KB/SOL on ask.f5?

thanks,

b

Can anyone at F5 comment on whether OAM functionality is planned to be added to the VE Lab license at any point? Seems a strange omission - and I can't see a reason to miss it out.

the reason is money i believe, f5 has to pay a license for it, so adding it to the lab would give it a higher cost.

ah yes - that sounds like a likely reason ...although I was told by F5 that it was either "an oversight", or something to do with them not being able to limit OAM to 10Mbs or some equally 'lab' functionality - so it would have essentially been a full version. Either way - it's a pain - but possibly understandable - but F5 should make this much clearer in their documentation / spec for the Lab edition.

Hi Kurt,

The VE lab edition includes all of the modules. The APM license is APM-lite (10 user limit). The overall throughput is limited as well. Overall, it works great for functional testing on any current version.

Aaron,

great. Thanks for that info. I will just need the license for testing and iRule development. For that, speed is not a matter, but functionality is. This license is what I need :-).

BTW: Can I register it for 10.2 AND 11.x?

Sure, you can use an eval key for 10.2.x and 11.x slots on the same VE.

Aaron - can you confirm that OAM integration functionality isn't included in APM-lite? I've just seen a log error which says:

"APM full license is required for OAM to work."
"Traffic Control & Enforcement(ltm_classification) feature is not licensed"

If so, is the minimum spec for a VE OAM lab: F5-BIG-LTM-VE-LAB + F5-ADD-BIG-APM-VE-B ?

It'd also be good to see some more information/documentation regarding APM-lite as I can't seem to find any.

thanks
Carl

Hey Carl,

I'll email you about this. You're correct though that currently you need a full APM license to use the OAM integration.

I have the F5-BIG-VE-LAB licence and am deploying a POC for VMware View VDI with PCoIP, I don't seem to have the option in 11.5 to allocated "Advanced Resource Assignment" within the policy builder. Is this also a limitation of the limited licence as i can't find anything in the release notes to suggest it has been removed? Thanks David

never heard about that missing before, if i remember ill check my 11.5 tomorrow, it could very well be renamed or replaced. there isnt anything else which suits your needs?

checked it David, i run 11.5.0 with a lab license and got: Advanced Resource Assign (Expression-based assignment of Connectivity Resources, Webtop, and ACLs) third option under the the Assignment tab. did you perhaps make an access profile which doesnt support this?
