This command allows you to set or add a category name to the classification.
Note that this command will only be effective with UDP and TCP traffic, as all other IP protocols are classified before any iRule events fire.
Note: the Policy Enforcement Manager license is required for functionality to work.


CLASSIFY::category set <category_name>
CLASSIFY::category add <category_name>

CLASSIFY::category set <category_name>

  • will immediately classify flow as category_name. The classification by the classification engine will be bypassed. Flow

will have the unknown application classification token.

CLASSIFY::category add <category_name>

  • will add a category classification token to the final classification result issued by the classification engine. This can be

issued multiple times in order to add multiple tokens to the classification result
Note: set/add commands will have no effect if fired after the flow has been classified.
