This is the Default behavior for HTTP 1.1; if multiple GETs are present in the same TCP connection, the CSM will examine every GET.

If the new GET needs to be sent to a different serverfarm, the connection with the current server is closed and a new connection with a new server if opened.

This is completely transparent to the client.

Image that you have a serverfarm for people going to www.test.com/development and a different serverfarm for people going to www.test.com/learning

If the client opens a single TCP connection and sends a GET for both sites within the same connection (HTTP persistence), the CSM will match each specific request to its policy and send it to the proper serverfarm (opens a single connection on the backend for each GET).

Hope it helps!!
