This action is performed in HTTP forwarding phase. It is used to inspect the variable of HTTP request, and look up the persistence entry with its value and pool uuid as key. If the persistence entry is found, the HTTP request is forwarded to the recorded backend server according to the persistence entry. If the persistence entry is not found, a new entry is created in the table after backend server is selected.
If the persistence profile path is not specified, a default persistence table is created per virtual server. Currently, only LBGenericPersistenceProfile is supported.
The property identifies the load balancer rule action type.
The property is used to enable a hash operation for variable value when composing the persistence key.
