Symptoms

DSCP marking is lost for APM VPN traffic on BIG-IP. As a result, APM Client Side Traffic Control feature isn't working.

Impact

End user traffic cannot get proper traffic control.

Conditions

If DSCP marking is set on the "apm resource client-rate-class", the marking is not copied over to the server-side.

Workaround

Use a fowarding virtual with fastl4 profile after client traffic gets out of VPN tunnel.

Fix Information

DSCP marking for client traffic control is now passed through APM VPN tunnel.
