|Function||avi.vs.table_lookup( [table_name,] key [, lifetime_exten] )|
|Description||The table API is used to store and retrieve custom data. The avi.vs.table_lookup API looks up a key and return the corresponding value. This key-value store is unique per Virtual Service and is mirrored across all Service Engines hosting the VS.|
|Parameter||If the optional table_name is not specified, the key is looked up in the default table for the VS. When it is specified, a custom table will be searched.
The key is used to look up the value.
The optional lifetime_exten flag must be a positive integer, indicating the length of time, in seconds, that should be added to the current lifetime parameter for the key. When not specified, the default value of 300 seconds is used. This means that by default, looking up the value of a key will extend the lifetime of a key by an additional 300 seconds. To lookup the key without impacting the expiration, set the lifetime_exten flag to 0.
|Returns||Returns the value field of the key. If no value exists or the key does not exist, returns nil.
The remaining lifetime, a non-negative integer representing the remaining lifetime of the entry in seconds.
