Overview: Configuring a virtual server for multi-source or multi-destination traffic

When you configure the BIG-IP system, you typically create a separate virtual server for each unique source or destination IP address/port combination specified within the header of ingress packets. You also assign a unique set of profiles and policies that you want the virtual server to apply to the matching traffic.
In some cases, however, disparate traffic flows destined for various IP addresses and ports all need the same set of profiles and policies applied to them. Rather than creating many separate virtual servers to accomplish this, you can create a single virtual server that specifies multiple source or destination IP address/port combinations, while applying the same set of profiles and policies to all of the traffic.
