LTM Rewrite Profile in URI translation mode allows modification of HTML and/or CSS responses. Any other types of response should be sent untouched to client. But if the original response is chunked, the client might receive unchunked data.


If client application expects chunked response, it may not work correctly.


-- Virtual server with Rewrite profile in URI translation mode. -- Binary data or plain text on backend server. -- Chunked response from backend server.


Use an iRule to enable response re-chunking: when HTTP_RESPONSE { if [HTTP::header exists "Transfer-encoding"] { HTTP::payload rechunk } }
