       source-addr - Configures a source address affinity persistence profile.

       ltm persistence

       Configure the source-addr component within the ltm persistence module
       using the syntax in the following sections.

	create source-addr [name]
	modify source-addr [name]
	    app-service [[string] | none]
	    defaults-from [name]
	    description [string]
	    map-proxies [enabled | disabled]
	    map-proxy-address [ip address]
	    map-proxy-class [class name]
	    hash-algorithm [carp | default]
	    mask [ [ip address] | none]
	    match-across-pools [enabled | disabled]
	    match-across-services [enabled | disabled]
	    match-across-virtuals [enabled | disabled]
	    mirror [enabled | disabled]
	    override-connection-limit [enabled | disabled]
	    timeout [integer]

	edit source-addr [ [ [name] | [glob] | [regex] ] ... ]

	mv source-addr [ [[source-name] [destination-name]] | [[name] to-folder [folder-name]] | [[] to-folder [folder-name]] ]

	list source-addr
	list source-addr[ [ [name] | [glob] | [regex] ] ... ]
	show running-config source-addr
	show running-config source-addr[ [ [name] | [glob] | [regex] ] ... ]

	delete source-addr [name]

       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.

       list source-addr

       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
	    is disabled.

	    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
	    persistence record.

	    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
	    variable Persist.WellKnownProxyClass.

       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
	    is disabled.

	    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.
