modify rule conversation-type
The command modify rule conversation-type sets how conversation-based load balancing is performed.
Conversations are traffic streams that must be kept together and forwarded intact to a tool port. How the system determines a conversation must be specified. For example, selecting only 'Include IP pair' indicates all connections between a unique IP pair must be kept intact and forwarded to the same tool port.
This command does not enable load balancing. Refer to modify rule balance .
The effects of this command only apply to rules that have the conversation-based load balancing type selected.. Refer to modify rule balance-type.
 
Usage
