A BIG-IP® system provides advanced Message Routing Framework (MRF) capabilities. The BIG-IP Generic Message Protocol is a prototype implementation of a protocol filter compatible with MRF. It provides iRule commands to enable a script writer to parse an input stream into messages to be routed by the Message Routing Framework. It also provides a route table implemention supporting both static routes and dynamic routes.
This guide is designed to introduce the reader to Generic Message Configuration Objects as well as provide an example of how to use Generic Message.
