Best Practice for http->https redirection?

What is the Best Practices method for doing a http->https redirect? I know you can do it with an iRule, httpclass profile, probably stream profile, etc, etc. I also realize that different use cases may have different methods, but I'm looking for the Best Practice for simple http->https redirection of a HTTP virtual server to a HTTPS virtual server.


Since there are so many ways to solve the problem, what is the recommended (and hopefully most resource efficient) method?
