Hi everybody, A network request that seemed to be simple is giving some trouble to our network team, I'd appreciate some help. Here's a summary of the rules to be put in place: 1) example.domain.c...

    Hi awakenings ,

    you might use the regexp, but using globbing is probably less CPU intensive:

    when HTTP_REQUEST {
       # Check the requested path (set to lowercase)
       # -glob: allow string pattern matching
       switch -glob -- [string tolower [HTTP::path]] {
          "/cali" -
          "/cali/" -
          "/cali/*" {
             log local0. "Matched pool 1 paths for [HTTP::uri]"
             pool pool1
          "/california" -
          "/california/" -
          "/california/*"  {
             log local0. "Matched pool 2 paths for [HTTP::uri]"
             pool pool2
          default {
             log local0. "Hit default for [HTTP::uri]"
             pool pool_default

    This will send traffic to /cali and following segments to pool1 while traffic to /california and following segments will be forwarded to pool2.
