How does the BIG-IP process multiple LTM policies on a virtual server?
I have a LTM traffic policy on a virtual server that I use to perform hostname-based routing for 10 different applications. There is a rule for each app, and once there is a match on the hostname, no further rules are evaluated and traffic is forwarded appropriately.
Hypothetically, let's say that instead of using a single policy and multiple rules, I created a new policy for each of the 10 apps, with each policy having only one rule to route traffic for a single app. If a request for App_1 comes through and the hostname matches the rule in Policy_1, would the rules in policies 2-10 be evaluated, or would the evaluation stop similar to what happens with a single policy and multiple rules?
I'd love to hear any thoughts on this. I've been reading through the BIG-IP documentation but I haven't found anything yet, so any help would be greatly appreciated. :)
