SYS_T

Sep 12, 2016

Designates an expression that refers to the ApplicationSwitch, rather than the client or server.

This topic lists the expressions that are provided by this class.

CHECK_LIMIT (text_t identifier_name)

Used for rate limiting. Returns a boolean Result.

Parameters (expressions not allowed):

identifier_name - Identifier Name

Returns: bool_at

CLIENT_EXPR (client_expr s)

Evaluates a client expression. Returns a boolean result.
Examples:

CLIENT_EXPR(ce%client.av(Norton).exists%)
add some more examples

Parameters (expressions not allowed):

s - Client Expression

Returns: bool_at

ERROR

Returns the error encountered when performing the last operation.

Returns: error_t

EVAL_CLASSIC_EXPR (classic_expr s)

Evaluate classic-style Netscaler expressions. The result of this evaluation can continued to be used for further PIXL operations. This operation is intended to be a bridge between traditional NetScaler expressions, which we call "classic" expressions and the PI expressions. Both inline and named classic expressions can be used as input.
Examples:

SYS.EVAL_CLASSIC_EXPR("ns_slowclient")
SYS.EVAL_CLASSIC_EXPR("REQ.SSL.CLIENT.CIPHER.BITS > 1000")
SYS.EVAL_CLASSIC_EXPR("url contains abc")
SYS.EVAL_CLASSIC_EXPR("REQ.IP.SOURCEIP == 10.102.1.61 -netmask 255.255.255.255")
SYS.EVAL_CLASSIC_EXPR("time >= *:30:00GMT")
SYS.EVAL_CLASSIC_EXPR("e1 || e2")
SYS.EVAL_CLASSIC_EXPR("REQ.HTTP.URLLEN > 50")
SYS.EVAL_CLASSIC_EXPR("dayofweek == wedGMT")

Parameters (expressions not allowed):

s - Classic Expression

Returns: bool_at

HTTP_CALLOUT (http_callout_bool hc)

Make a http callout. Returns a boolean result.

Parameters (expressions not allowed):

hc - Name of Http callout that returns boolean result.

Returns: bool_at

HTTP_CALLOUT (http_callout_num hc)

Make a http callout. Returns a number result.

Parameters (expressions not allowed):

hc - Name of Http callout that returns number result.

Returns: num_at

HTTP_CALLOUT (http_callout_text hc)

Make a http callout. Returns a text result.

Parameters (expressions not allowed):

hc - Name of Http callout that returns text as result.

Returns: text_t

NANO_TIME

Returns the current system time as the number of nanoseconds since "GMT Jan 1 1970 0h 0m 0.000000000s". Accuracy may be at larger granularity than nanosecond resolution.

Returns: unsigned_long_at

NON_BLOCKING_HTTP_CALLOUT (http_callout_bool hc)

Make a non blocking http callout. Returns a boolean result 'true'.

Parameters (expressions not allowed):

hc - Name of Http callout that returns boolean result that is ignored.

Returns: bool_at

NON_BLOCKING_HTTP_CALLOUT (http_callout_num hc)

Make a non blocking http callout. Returns a number that is '0'.

Parameters (expressions not allowed):

hc - Name of Http callout that returns number which is ignored.

Returns: num_at

NON_BLOCKING_HTTP_CALLOUT (http_callout_text hc)

Make a non blocking http callout. Returns a text that is of zero length.

Parameters (expressions not allowed):

hc - Name of Http callout that returns text as result which is ignored.

Returns: text_t

NSIP

Returns the netscaler's IPV4 address.

Returns: ip_address_at

RANDOM

Returns a random number between 0 and 1, inclusive of 0 but exclusive of 1

Returns: double_at

SERVICEGROUP (text_t servicegroup_name)

Used for Servicegroup expressions.These expression raises an undef if servicegroup with the given name doesn't exist.

Parameters (expressions not allowed):

servicegroup_name - ServiceGroup Name

Returns: servicegroup_t

SERVICE (text_t service_name)

Used for Service expressions.These expression raises an undef if service with the given name doesn't exist.

Parameters (expressions not allowed):

service_name - Service Name

Returns: service_t

TIME

Returns the current system time as the number of seconds since "GMT Jan 1 1970 0h 0m 0s".
NOTE: It is not possible to set the system time to date and time before 1970.

Returns: time_at

VSERVER (text_t vserver_name)

Used for vserver expressions.These expressions raise undef if virtual server with name doesn't exist.

Parameters (expressions not allowed):

vserver_name - Virtual Server

Returns: vserver_t
