How To Avoid F5 LTM SNAT Pool Exhaustion

In the recent Indeni 6.0 release, we are excited to announce additional knowledge support for F5 Networks. One of the most common pain points customers of F5 users is around managing SNAT pools.

Why use SNATpool availability?
Source Network Address Translation (SNAT) is used by an F5 load balancer to allocate a dedicated IP and port for a connection facing a pool member. This allows the pool member to return the traffic to the correct session. SNAT uses ports to do the translation, and there is a limit to the number of ports one can use concurrently for a given IP address. Indeni will alert when the SNAT pool is nearing its capacity.

Watch this video to see how Indeni helps IT operations avoid F5 SNAT pool exhaustion or check out the alert & remediation steps.
