Per Peer

A BIG-IP system will make just one connection to a peer. This means that only one TMM is connected to each Peer. While this connection mode uses fewer connections it will introduce latency. This will happen when messages are disaggregated to the wrong TMM and must be forwarder. The following diagram provides additional detail.
Optimum scenario
Optimum scenario
  1. Message arrives on a Virtual Server (VS)
  2. Message is disaggregated to TMM-0
  3. TMM-0 is connected to the correct server so the message is sent
Performance impacted scenario
Performance impacted scenario
  1. Message arrives on a Virtual Server (VS)
  2. Message is disaggregated to TMM-1
  3. TMM-1 is not connected to Server 1 so message must be forwarded to the correct TMM. This will introduce latency.
  4. TMM-0 is send message to Server 1
