ProxyPass iRule, Version 8.2 usage

I'm trying to implement ProxyPass iRule, Version 8.2 so I can remove apache from a server . The apache code does nothing accept 'proxypass' to another app on the same server . Here is the proxy pass statement in the httpd.conf file



ProxyPass /LogToolDEV/ http://localhost:8080/



Currently the user connects to this app using a url like this






The bigip terminates the ssl and I currently have a simple irule that looks for the 'LogToolDEV' and changes the pool to 'test' (port 80) on which apache is listening .


This works fine.



So it seems as though I can bypass apache all together with the ProxyPass irule . I


have tried various combinations in the irule data group , here are 2



/LogToolDEV/ test8080


/LogToolDEV/ / test8080



the pool test8080 point to the server , port 8080



I have verified the existence of pool 'test8080' but irule debug shows

What am I missing ?
