iRule changes not loading

Changes to iRule scripts attached to a virtual or transport-config do not change the scripts executing on existing connections. New connections will use the updated scripts. To cause the new script code to be applied, all existing connections (both client side and server side) will need to be closed and new connections created. This may be avoided by moving the business logic of the script to a procedure as follows:
ltm rule mylib { proc sip_ingress {} { if { [SIP::is_request] and [clientside] } { # do something # change here } else { # do something else # change here } } } ltm rule routing { when SIP_INGRESS { call mylib::sip_ingress } }
