F5 TCP Proxy mode
I am trying to mimic some settings from HAProxy and migrate them to F5.
In HAProxy we have what is called TCP proxy mode where HAProxy doesn't terminate SSL connection but just connects the client directly to the backend servers.
That config looks like this:
if you don't need SSL Offloading, iRules, HTTP profiles, L7-based persistence - why not use the Virtual Server type Performance (Layer 4) instead of type Standard?
- K01155812: Overview of the Performance (Layer 4) virtual server and
- K09948701: Overview of the FastL4 profile
Specially this "Using the FastL4 profile can increase virtual server performance and throughput for supported platforms by using the embedded Packet Velocity Acceleration (ePVA) chip to accelerate traffic." makes it a good choice for pure L4 loadbalancing.
