Introduced : BIG-IP_v11.4.0
The classification methods have some signatures, and these signatures change with time. For example, the signatures to identify the Skype traffic working now may not work later. Thus the classification signatures need to be updated. This signature update version interface enables you to configure the versions for classification signature updates. In more detail, the update time and version number of the last updated classification signature can be shown. Please specify the following key in all methods in the interface: &apos/Common/version-info&apos.


Method Description Introduced
