List of resulting prerequisite and SFC objects

The prerequisite objects that you created are:
  • One tunnel for the NSH-aware service function (SF) of type IP in the chain
  • Two VLANs for the non-NSH-aware SF in the chain
  • A self IP address for each SFF’s underlay network
  • A self IP address for each of the two SFs of type IP (non-NSH-aware and NSH-aware)
  • A Performance (Layer 4) and custom virtual server, for each forwarding SFF and SF of type virtual, respectively
The objects that the SFC controller created are:
  • A REST trust group containing a group of BIG-IP devices designated as service nodes
  • A BIG-IP device that functions as an SFC controller
  • Two service function forwarders (SFFs)
  • A VXLAN-GPE tunnel that connects the SFFs
  • A default or custom virtual server to handle traffic through the tunnel that connects the SFFs
  • A self IP address on each SFF that functions as an overlay address for the VXLAN tunnel
  • Three SFs, each associated with a specific SFF
  • A service chain connecting the service chain components
