Deployment Best Practices

Best practices for deploying BIG-IP VE on KVM

When deploying BIG-IP® Virtual Edition (VE) on a KVM host, use these best practices.

Disable hyper-threading on older processors F5 Networks recommends turning off Hyper-Threading Technology when using host machines with Intel Pentium 4 era processors. Doing so will prevent possible timing issues with BIG-IP VE.
