BIGTCP::release_flow on HTTP virtual server


I have a virtual server standard+http which relies on an HTTP header for persistence. Only the very first HTTP request matter, I do not need HTTP parsing for the rest of the session. Unfortunatly the load is very high on this virtual server and I am looking for performance improvements. I cannot use fastL4+HTTP as the serverside connection is already setup when the first HTTP request comes in. 

I found that BIGTCP::release_flow allows a FIX session to start in L7 mode and transition later to fastL4.

Can this command be used without FIX licence on a plain HTTP VIP ? ideally within an HTTP_REQUEST event.


other suggestions are also welcome
