Is it possible to distribute multiple HTTP requests that use the same TCP connection?
We have a single client that is doing address validation. The address validation servers are located behind the F5 BigIP LTM. This client is making multiple HTTP requests a second over one TCP connection. The problem is that all of the requests are going to only one node in the Virtual Server due to the fact that the F5 BigIP LTM load balances at the TCP connection level by default. It seems that you can use a OneConnect profile along with an iRule to direct different types of requests to different pools (e.g. www.abc.com/foo1/ goes to pool1 and www.abc.com/foo2/ goes to pool2). Our problem is that all requests will look very similar.
Is there a way to distribute HTTP Requests evenly between all nodes in the Virtual Server even though those requests traverse the same TCP connection? We do not need persistence for this Virtual Server.
