Problem this snippet solves:

This script will create two application pools, one HTTP and one HTTPS, for a given application name and version. It will then create the associated HTTP and HTTPS monitor templates and associate them with the new pools. When a new version of an application is created, this script can be used to create the backend resources for that specific application version. The application virtual server can then be configured to change the default pool to the latest version or an iRule can be used to dynamically switch between which application version is appropriate for the given request.
