CSS - Leastconn settings not working....

Unanswered Question
Jul 11th, 2007

I have configured my CSS to balance using the Leastconn method but it appears load distribution is still being done disproportionately. The IOS version is and the config in production is as shown below:

content Schedules

protocol tcp

port 80

vip address

advanced-balance sticky-srcip

balance leastconn

add service mxesweb1:9020

add service mxesweb2:7003

sticky-serverdown-failover redirect

add service mxesweb2:7005

add service mxesweb2:7007


The show Summ command output is as shown below:

xxxxxx-10# sh summ

Global Bypass Counters:

No Rule Bypass Count: 184247

Acl Bypass Count: 0

Owner Content Rules State Services Service Hits

xxxxx Schedule Active

mxesweb1:902 0

mxesweb2:700 744

mxesweb2:700 288

mxesweb2:700 0

Any input would be very much appreciated.


I have this problem too.

the answer is here :

advanced-balance sticky-srcip

if you do stickyness it has priority over the balancing algorithm. We first want to stick before loadbalancing.

If you had a server done, all sitcky entries will point to the other servers and the last one won't get anything even when coming up.

Try to clear the sticky table.
