TMOS stands for Traffic Management Operating System. F5's TMOS is the operating system that supports all of their network and traffic hardware, physical or virtual. For clarity: TMOS is not an individual OS, but rather a collection of operating systems and firmware that run BIG-IP hardware. TMOS is the underlying infrastructure that makes F5 technologies possible, which is why knowing how to navigate and configure it is fundamental for F5 administrators.

It's generally agreed that the 201 TMOS certification exam isn't particularly difficult, and a moderate amount of administration experience can be all it takes to pass the exam.

Practical familiarity with the TMOS operating system and BIG-IP administration fundamentals are the two biggest factors to ensuring the certification exam is doable.
