A new iRule command is available, DIAMETER::skip_capabilities_exchange, to skip the capabilities exchange messages.
When DIAMETER::skip_capabilities_exchange is executed during the CLIENT_ACCEPTED event, the BIG-IP system bypasses capabilities exchange messaging and causes the connection to be able to immediately accept DIAMETER messages.
To skip the capabilities exchange messages -- Within an internal virtual server for protocol translation. -- Analyzing a tab connection for logging/analysis. -- Internally generated DIAMETER messages (e.g., for logging, authentication, etc.).
None needed. This is new capability.
