Local Traffic Manager includes F5 iApps, a powerful set of features that enable you to manage application services rather than individual devices and objects. iApps gives you greater visibility and control over application delivery—and helps you deploy in hours rather than weeks. This application-centric approach aligns the network with your applications and adapts application delivery to business needs. Local Traffic Manager also gives you unprecedented control and flexibility with F5 iRules, a scripting language that enables you to intercept, inspect, transform, and direct application traffic. Using iRules, you can adapt to any application delivery challenge seamlessly across the data center, virtual infrastructure, and the cloud.
