source-addr - Configures a source address affinity persistence profile.
Configure the source-addr component within the ltm persistence module
using the syntax in the following sections.

You can use the source-addr component to configure a source address
affinity persistence profile for the BIG-IP(r) system. Also known as
simple persistence, source address affinity persistence supports TCP
and UDP protocols, and directs session requests to the same server
based solely on the source IP address of a packet.
A persistence profile is a profile that enables persistence when you
assign the profile to a virtual server. Using a persistence profile
means that you do not have to write an iRule to implement a type of
persistence. You can either use the default profile, or create a custom
profile based on the default.
Displays all source address affinity persistence profiles.
create source-addr simple_persistence defaults-from source_addr
Creates a custom source address affinity persistence profile named
simple_persistence that inherits its settings from the default source
address affinity persistence profile.
mv source-addr /Common/my_source-addr_profile to-folder
Moves a custom source address persistence profile named
my_source-addr_profile to a folder named my_folder, where my_folder has
already been created and exists within /Common.
Specifies the name of the application service to which the profile
belongs. The default value is none. Note: If the strict-updates
option is enabled on the application service that owns the object,
you cannot modify or delete the profile. Only the application
service can modify or delete the profile.
Specifies the existing profile from which the system imports
settings for the new profile. The default value is source_addr,
the system default cookie persistence profile.
User defined description.
glob Displays the items that match the glob expression. See help glob
for a description of glob expression syntax.
Specifies the system uses hash persistence load balancing. The
default value is default (no hash persistence).
The options are:
carp Specifies to use the Cache Array Routing Protocol (CARP) to
select the pool member for LB. The input to CARP is the hash
value of source address.
no hash persistence.
Enables or disables the map proxies attribute. The default value
This attribute controls whether a source address will first be
checked against an IP data-group/class to determine whether it is
a well-known proxy address. If it matches the IP class, then the
source address will be mapped to a single IP address for the
purposes of persistence. The default well known proxy class is
based on a pre-defined data-group "aol" which represents the
AOL(r) company's previously-published list of proxies. Using this
feature enables you to use client/source IP address persistence
with a simple persist mask, but forces all clients matching the IP
class to persist to the same server. The IP data-group/class may
also be changed using either the map-proxy-class profile attribute
or globally by changing the DB variable
Persist.WellKnownProxyClass. Also, the IP address used for mapping
a single source IP address for persistence may also be
specifically set using the map-proxy-address profile attribute.
Specifies the single IP address to use when the source address
matches the proxy data-group/class. The default value is any which
results in the default behavior of using one of the IP addresses
from the proxy data-group/class. Note: This mapped IP address does
not have to be contained in the IP data-group/class. It may
actually be any IP address since it is only used for keying the
Specifies the data-group/class to use for determining whether a
source address is from a proxy. The default value is none which
will result in map_proxies using the class defined by the DB
mask Specifies an IP mask. This is the mask used by simple persistence
for connections. The default value is ::.
Specifies, when enabled, that the system can use any pool that
contains this persistence record. The default value is disabled.
Specifies, when enabled, that all persistent connections from a
client IP address, which go to the same virtual IP address, also
go to the same node. The default value is disabled.
Specifies, when enabled, that all persistent connections from the
same client IP address go to the same node. The default value is
Specifies whether the system mirrors persistence records to the
high-availability peer. The default value is disabled.
name Specifies a unique name for the component. This option is required
for the commands create, delete, and modify.
Specifies, when enabled, that the pool member connection limits
are not enforced for persisted clients. Per-virtual connection
limits remain hard limits and are not disabled. The default value
Displays the administrative partition within which the component
Displays the items that match the regular expression. The regular
expression must be preceded by an at sign (@[regular expression])
to indicate that the identifier is a regular expression. See help
regex for a description of regular expression syntax.
Specifies the duration of the persistence entries. The default
value is 180 seconds.
source-addr persistence profiles can be moved to any folder under
/Common, but configuration dependencies may restrict moving the
profile out of /Common.
