1. Transparent Cache

In this module we will prepare the objects required to build a transparent cache.

In the next exercise a DNS profile will reference the cache and a Listener will forward traffic to a healthy backend DNS server


Enabling a transparent cache on the BIG-IP will offload some DNS queries from being sent to the internal DNS servers.


Log into the gateway device router01.brancho1 in the branch office

Navigate to DNS ›› Caches : Cache List

Create a transparent cache

Setting Value
Name transparent_cache
Resolver Type Transparent

TMSH command for router01.branch01:


tmsh create ltm dns cache transparent transparent_cache
