Create a custom HTTP profile

Part of configuring an HTTP/2 full-proxy configuration on the BIG-IP system is to first create a standard HTTP profile. An HTTP profile defines the way that you want the BIG-IP system to manage HTTP traffic.
For the most expedient HTTP/2 full-proxy configuration, you can create a single HTTP profile that the BIG-IP system will apply to both client-side and server-side HTTP traffic. Alternatively, if you want the BIG-IP system to manage client-side and server-side traffic in different ways, you can create two separate HTTP profiles and configure the settings differently in each profile.
  1. On the Main tab, click
    Local Traffic
    Profiles
    Services
    HTTP
    .
    The HTTP profile list screen opens.
  2. Click
    Create
    .
    The New HTTP Profile screen opens.
  3. Type a unique
    Name
    for the profile.
  4. From the
    Parent Profile
    list, select
    http
    .
  5. Select the
    Custom
    check box.
  6. From the
    Request Chunking
    list:
    • Select
      Rechunk
      if you always want the BIG-IP system to send a request to the server as chunked.
    • Select
      Sustain
      if you want the BIG-IP system to decide whether to send a request to the server as chunked or unchunked.
  7. From the
    Response Chunking
    list:
    • Select
      Unchunk
      if you always want the BIG-IP system to send a response to the client as unchunked. Note that if the content length is undefined because an HTTP payload handler modified the content, the system closes the connection.
    • Select
      Rechunk
      if you always want the BIG-IP system to send a response to the client as chunked.
    • Select
      Sustain
      if you want the BIG-IP system to decide whether to send a response to the client as chunked or unchunked.
  8. Modify the other settings as required for your configuration.
  9. If you want the BIG-IP system to manage server-side traffic differently from client-side traffic, click
    Repeat
    and create another HTTP profile.
  10. Click
    Finished
    .
Any custom HTTP profile that you have created now appears on the HTTP profile list screen and is ready for you to assign to a virtual server.
