What is the timer in the sticky group do? It is an idle timer or cache timer? I am using source ip based sticky on one of my vserver. there are two reals behind it and only two front end (proxy) web servers that hits it. when I remove one of the real (serverA), all the connection sourced by the two web server goes to the other real(serverB). When I bring back serverA, I don't see any connection going to it. I think that's because the two front end web servers are being "stuck" to serverB. When I view the sticky table, I see the specific group with a timer value that's decreasing. I'm tempted to change the sticky timer to 1 (minute) but am not sure it it's a idle timer or a cache timer.
