You can configure a cookie persistence profile that uses session cookies. A session cookie is a transient cookie that is erased when the client browser session is closed. The session cookie is typically stored in temporary memory on the client system. One advantage to configuring a session cookie persistence profile is that a session cookie will not expire after a timeout period; the session cookie expires when the browser is closed.

Note: Some browsers implement a session restore feature that saves your browser session data after the system becomes unresponsive. The browser data is stored on the client system hard drive and restored when the browser is restarted.

Using the tmsh utility to configure a session cookie persistence profile

1. Log in to the Traffic Management Shell (tmsh) by typing the following command:

tmsh

2. To configure a cookie persistence profile using Session Cookie and the default method type of HTTP Cookie Insert, use the following command syntax:

create /ltm persistence cookie <name of profile> defaults-from cookie

For example:

create /ltm persistence cookie cookie_one defaults-from cookie

3. To configure a cookie persistence profile using Session Cookie and a method type of HTTP Cookie Rewrite, use the following command syntax:

create /ltm persistence cookie <name of profile> defaults-from cookie method rewrite

For example:

create /ltm persistence cookie cookie_one defaults-from cookie method rewrite

4. To save the new configuration, type the following command:

save /sys config

You must now associate the new persistence profile with the virtual server.

Note: For more information about the different types of HTTP cookie persistence you can configure your BIG-IP system to use, refer to the Cookie persistence section in the Enabling Session Persistence chapter of the Configuration Guide for BIG-IP Local Traffic Manager.
