I know that there are changes made to commands and events depending on the OS version,
but are there any difference to how iRules work in terms of platform?
For example, Hardware and Virtual editions?
(Or any other hardware to hardware platform e.g. 2000s <-> 4200v)
Thank you in advance,
the only iRule related difference between the individual plattforms is RAM and the CPU core number and their horse power.
Beside of those things, the execution of iRules makes no differences on different plattforms. The TMOS version and applied license has a much bigger impact...
Thank you for the details, Kai!
There is no specific irule codes for platforms but there are specific irule events and commands based on licences and irule provisioning.
Thank you Stanislas for your quick response.
I guess what I really wanted to ask was:
Are there any difference to how (the same)iRules are executed/evaluated on different platforms?
Very quick answer no.
If you are running the same version of TMOS then other than the speed of execution the iRules will execute in the same way as the underlying TCL version and library extensions will be the same.
Thank you AMG.
That was what I wanted to hear!
