iRULE for WCF TCP Bindings

This may be a long shot, but does anyone have any recommendations for doing content redirection using an iRule when a WCF TCP binding is the transport?



We have been doing iRules on HTTP bindings for years, but to improve performance the developers have recently changed to TCP bindings for transport on some of the latest project. I am not familiar with any TCL that I can run to differentiate amongst these connections but wanted to ask the group.



Anyone have any experience or suggestions?



Thanks in advance,

  • This one could be tricky, as the WCF stuff over tcp transport is all binary. How much of a performance increase do they see with the new transport? I ask because it's common to be able to tune up the HTTP/TCP side of the BigIP and get some good numbers. That's ideal because HTTP gives you so much flexiblity (and BigIP has a native parser).
