Round-Robin Algorthm

Answered Question
Sep 23rd, 2008

Hi Experts,

Would greatly appreciate your comments around this topic, also any related links would be most welcome.

How should the ACE distribute multiple connections from the same source under the round robin pedictor?

1. should all connections be sent to the same server the first connection was sent to?

2. should they be distributed evenly among rservers even though these are from the same src ip? If so, how does the ACE distinguish these connections?

I have this problem too.

the connectins should be distributed between the servers.

ACE distinguishes the connections from the source port which should be different for each connection.

If you want all connections to go to the same server, this can be done by configuring sticky src-ip.
