Specifying the Order of Evaluation of Application Units

Mar 24, 2016

Application unit rules are evaluated in the order in which they are placed in the configuration utility. The rule that is configured for the topmost application unit is always configured first, followed by the rule that is configured for the second topmost application unit, and so on. The default application unit is always evaluated last.

When a request matches the rule that is configured for an application unit, the request is processed by the application unit, and no further matching is performed. Therefore, the order of evaluation of application units becomes an important factor if the traffic subsets for two or more application units overlap. If the traffic subsets for two or more application units overlap, you must specify the order in which an incoming request is matched against the application unit rules.

To specify the order of evaluation of application units

  1. Navigate to AppExpert > Applications, select an application and click Edit. In the Application Unit section, click the Pencil icon and then hover the cursor over the check box to the left of the name of the application unit. Click the icon that appears next to the check box and hold down the mouse to drag the application up or down to a new location in the priority list.
