General specifications for system features

This table lists general specifications for system features for BIG-IP® iSeries platforms.

Item Specification
Transceiver modules hot swap Support for hot swap of optical transceiver modules
Fan tray hot swap Support for hot swap of the fan tray
Note: Applies only to i7000/i10000/i11000 Series platforms.
Power supply hot swap Support for hot swap of the power supplies in dual supply systems
Jumbo frames Support for maximum Ethernet frame size of 9216 bytes and MTU of 9128 bytes
F5® Virtual Clustered Multiprocessing™ (vCMP®) Supports provisioning and managing multiple, hosted instances of F5® software on a single hardware device
Note: Supported only in platforms running a high performance license (x800).
F5® TurboFlex™ Profiles TurboFlex Profiles are groupings of hardware-accelerated (FPGA) features that are associated with a specific use case. TurboFlex Profiles are groupings of hardware-accelerated features that are dependent on module licensing. If BIG-IP® LTM® is licensed and provisioned, then the ADC profile is available. If BIG-IP AFM™ is licensed and provisioned, then the Security profile is available. TurboFlex Profiles are supported only in platforms running a high performance license (x800). Also, TurboFlex Profile availability varies depending on the platform series tier. For more information, see F5 Platforms: TurboFlex Profiles at support.f5.com/kb/en-us/products/big-ip_ltm/manuals/product/f5-platform-turboflex-profiles.
