Introduced : BIG-IP_v9.4.2
The LTConfig module contains interfaces necessary to access configuration items that are managed by the loosely-typed configuration system. Such items include configuration parameters that historically were managed by hand access to files in the file system, or were manageable through iControl by having it access the filesystem. The LTConfig module allows you to use iControl to access a centralized database of information in a generic and regular way. The system updates daemons and other dependent agents that are affected by changed configuration parameters automatically (e.g., after a “set_values” method call).


Interface Description
Class The Class interface enables you to manage classes and class instances in the Loosely-Typed Configuration system.
Field The Field interface enables you to manage fields and field instances in the Loosely-Typed Configuration system.





A class instance key specifies fully a class instance. The model is: the loosely-typed configuration system has as meta-data classes and fields. A class contains a number of fields; that is a structural description of data. To complete the model, an instance of a class contains data values. (More accurately, class instances contain data values by containing field instances). The members of this structure can be read: “name” is an instance of class “class_name” inside object “container”.
