Newbie: Determining BigIP pool id/name of http request
I am trying to find an api method that will tell me from an application server, which bigIP pool the current HTTP request came through on. Either the F5 has to persist something in the request (HTTP cookie) as it is routed to a particular server in the pool or I need to call back to the server and supply it information like URL, IP address, HTTP port, etc. Would someone be kind enough to point me in the direction of the appropriate interfaces or suggest an alternate approach. The goal is that all servers in a pool need to know about each other so they can update data that is cached in the application server memory.
Thanks for any help.
