Per TMM

A BIG-IP system will make a connection from every TMM to the same peer. This means a machine with 8 cores will have 8 connections per peer. While this increases the number of active connections, it also improves performance because there is no need to forward messages between TMMs.
Every TMM is connected to every peer which decreases latency but increases the number of connections

  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
  4. Second message arrives
  5. Message is disaggregated to TMM-1
  6. TMM-1 is connected to the requested server so the message can be sent directly
