Name Type Default Value Required Access Description
appService string   optional read/write The application service that the object belongs to.
autoLasthop string default optional read/write Specifies whether auto lasthop is enabled or not. The default is to use next levels default.
bridgeInStandby string disabled optional read/write When enabled, specifies that the VLAN group forwards packets, even when the system is the standby unit in a redundant system. Note that this setting is designed for deployments in which the VLAN group exists on only one of the units. If that does not match your configuration, using this setting may cause adverse effects. The default value is disabled.
bridgeMulticast string enabled optional read/write When enabled, allows bridging of non-Internet Protocol (IP) Address Resolution Protocol (ARP) multicast frames across a VLAN group. An example of when you might want to use this option is when you are implementing the Spanning Tree Protocol (STP).
bridgeTraffic string disabled optional read/write When enabled, specifies that the VLAN group forwards all frames, including non-IP traffic. The default value is disable.
description string   optional read/write User defined description.
ifIndex integer 0 optional read/write Displays the index assigned to this VLAN group. It is a unique identifier assigned for all objects displayed in the SNMP IF-MIB.
migrationKeepalive string disabled optional read/write Specifies whether the system will send keepalive frames (TCP keepalives and empty UDP packets depending on the connection type) when a node is moved from one vlan-group member to another vlan-group member for all existing connections that the system has to that node.
mode string translucent optional read/write Specifies the level of exposure of remote MAC addresses within VLAN groups. The default value is translucent.
tmPartition string Common optional read/write Displays the administrative partition within which the vlan-group resides.


Name Type Default Value Required Access Description
members (net/tunnels/tunnel) array_structure   optional read/write The names of the VLANs you want to add to or remove from the VLAN group.
members (net/tunnels/tunnel) array_structure   optional read/write Specifies the IP addresses that you want to include in the proxy ARP exclusion list. If you use VLAN groups, you must configure a proxy ARP forwarding exclusion list. F5 recommends that you configure this feature if you use VLAN groups with a redundant system. The reason is that both units need to communicate directly with their gateways and the back-end nodes. Creating a proxy ARP exclusion list prevents traffic from being proxied through the active unit due to proxy ARP. This traffic needs to be sent directly to the destination, not proxied.
