Create application profiles for the TCP and HTTPS traffic on the Platform Services Controller load balancer.

About this task

After you configure a profile, you associate the profile with a virtual server. The virtual server then processes traffic according to the values specified in the profile. Using profiles enhances your control over managing network traffic, and makes traffic-management tasks easier and more efficient.
