The F5 website refers to the “Local Traffic Manager” as the Brain of the Big IP platform that intelligently manages network traffic so that applications are always fast, available and easy.
What is Load Balancing / Local Traffic Manager?
Role of a Traffic Police is to direct and route traffic to ensure smooth movement of road traffic and avoid Traffic jams. Similarly, Load Balancing or Local Traffic Manager distributes network traffic to the appropriate online server which can efficiently fulfil requests in shortest possible time. Load Balancer servers direct traffic in such a way that maximizes speed and efficiency of all servers in a network. If there is heavy load on a particular server, traffic is routed to another server or more servers are added. This ensures that all servers are up and running for continuous and quick service.
