Hello. I have 4 servers with 2 services on each, running on different port. These services is cluster application and runs under content, where created 8 services. But, CSS always send users only at first service at server. I cannot figure where is problem. When I check for keepalive, they all alive. I tryed stop second services at all servers, they stopped and 'show keepalive' show me right information.

P.S. I have Java application running under Tomcat. Maybe, you have recomendation about cookies, balance method etc...

keepalive type http

keepalive method get

keepalive uri "/ping"

keepalive port 8085

  • Cisco Employee,

don't use 'balance aca'.

If you do not have enough traffic, you could end-up with all traffic going to one server.

Use roundrobin - the default. It fist most everybody's need.

Then, currently all your users probably have cookie pointing to server1 anyway. So you should create a different cookie name or clear the cookie table of all users.

The command to create a new name is 'arrowpoint-cookie name '.

After that, everything should work.

Sorry, my post is unclear a little. It goes not at one server, only at one service. I have services serv-01-8085, serv-01-8086, serv-02-8085,... and serv-04-8086. And traffic goes only at services serv-*-8085 and never at serv-*-8086.

I will try disable aca and add name for cookie. Thanks! (if it doesn't help, i'll write here).

  • Cisco Employee,

are you sure all the services are alive ?

check with 'show service summary'.

Or did you add the 2nd services after the first one ?

Yes, all of them is alive. When i turn off second services (at port 8086), 'show keepalive' command show alive only 8085 services. All services added in one time.

Today i execute commands:

1. suspend content

2. 'no balance' (to disable balance aca and switch to default)

3. 'arrowpoint-cookie name ccprod' (to define cookie name for content)

4. make content active

It doesn't help. All users come only at first instances on each server. And second stay idle.
