Subject RE: Traffic Server plugin for header based reverse proxying
Date Wed, 06 Feb 2013 15:12:58 GMT
Thanks Leif, can you point me to some lua plugin documentation as
unfortunately I am only getting C++ doc.

Also I would like to know if I can read the body of the http request too
using Lua to search for keywords.

Yeah, you have two choices:

1) Write a plugin in C/C++. You have access to all request headers

2) Write a Lua script using the Lua plugin.
