ACE-gurus & Gilles ,
First Query: We are facing "connection failure" counter increment, what all could be the reasons for this failures and what can be done to minimize it, if its not a bug, running 3.0 A2(1.0) ?
Second Query:I have a single farm with multiple vlans in it with URL hashing, we see that the load distribution on the caches in unequal, to say, 1 vlan with 1 server gets 500Meg of traffic and second vlan with 2 caches gets 400Meg of traffic which is almost equally divided between the 2 caches, its seems suspicious to the customer that the vlan is impacting load distribution, though we know its not possible to impact.
We do heavily suspect the kind of traffic entering the ACE like videos from various known sites goiing to 1 cache, on this with URl hash, does ace hash the whole URL, like www.abc.com/cat/video/ or just the domain, abc.com ??
IMHO its the whole URL, but need some confirmation on it, and to optimize somewhat equal distribution to the caches of traffic bytes ( as the no. of connections are almost equal.) what can be tweaked in the URl hash algorithm to make things work.
Have very little time to come up with a workable solution.
Thanx in advance
