    Leonid,

    This should be pretty simple. You want to set
    up a rule that will identify HTTP protocol and
    send it to an appropriate pool but send anything
    that can't be identified as HTTP to another pool.
    A good choice would be to check HTTP VERSION,
    since there are only two possibilities - 1.0 and
    1.1.

    So your rule logic could be:

    HTTP VERSION = 1.0 -> HTTP_Pool
    HTTP VERSION = 1.1 -> HTTP_Pool
    ELSE -> HTTPS_Pool

    That should do the trick, though it will
    obviously send anything that is neither HTTPS
    nor HTTP to your HTTPS pool.
