Problem this snippet solves:

This PowerShell application will do a reverse lookup for pools given a pool member definition.

Pool's are collections of pool members which are IP address and ports for a specific back end application server. Currently through the iControl API there is no direct way to do a reverse lookup of which pools a specified application server is a member of. This application will, given a pool member specification, do a reverse lookup and list all the associated pools that member is included in.
