CSM Load balancing

I need the CSM to load share based on source TCP ports coming from a single "client" address while still using sticky?

The issue is that we are getting uneven load sharing on the web servers as we may see 100s of connections coming in hidden behind a single NAT (PAT) and staying on one server kicking up the connections. In many cases we cannot create NAT pools as we do not control the devices where the PAT originates.

Can the CSM do this?

When load balancing traffic runs through the CSM system, the Internet Exchange Point (IXP) engine statistics are of interest, because they depict the utilization of the CPUs involved in the switching or forwarding function.

In some scenarios, a high CPU load on the CSM blade can be seen in the Server Load Balancing (SLB) SendDraco thread of about 49 or 37 percent.

Post detail about sh run.
