If PEM virtual server is configured using bigTCP, the return traffic from the server may not return to the same TMM. PEM policies do not get applied.


PEM policies do not get applied.


-- BIG-IP Virtual Edition. -- bigTCP is configured (FastL4 with PEM/GPA hudfilters). -- Virtual server uses Source-NAT.


To work around this, do the following: -- Configure bigTCP virtual server not to use source-NAT. -- Configure destination-IP for hashing in server-vlan (the external VLAN that has the virtual server).
