Routing requirements overview

To simplify the task of creating the required routing for your BIG-IQ solution, consider the following set of diagrams and tables that describe a typical BIG-IQ solution. These diagrams illustrate the subnets that the components use to communicate in a BIG-IQ solution that uses four NICs. The accompanying table then details the static routing assignments that need to be made.
This example system has two BIG-IQ instances, four BIG-IQ data collection devices, and "several" BIG-IP devices. These devices are deployed to two data centers as part of a disaster recovery solution and use four subnets. These figures illustrate the subnet topology and the tables detail the static routing assignments for one of the data centers. The details for the other data center are symmetric. Understanding the illustrations and analysis for data center 1 (DC1) in this hypothetical system should provide you with all you need to know to determine the requirements for data center (DC2) in the same system.
We strongly encourage you to use a similar organizational aide to help you visualize and record the static routing requirements needed for your solution. To further grasp the way to use this aide, refer to
DC1 BIG-IQ CM routing analysis.
