We are having two application servers.Both are load balanced using ACE.

When we bring down one server, we find that when we upload some files into the second application server, its too slow.

But when primary server comes up again the performance increases.This issue happens only when we bring the primary server down.

We are using cookie based stickiness.Any ideas where we can look into.

SLB is the process of deciding to which server a load-balancing device should send a client request for service. For example, a client request may consist of an HTTP GET for a web page or an FTP GET to download a file. The job of the load balancer is to select the server that can successfully fulfill the client request and do so in the shortest amount of time without overloading either the server or the server farm as a whole.Check for the Loadbalncing configuration on the ACE to check the traffic alloacted to pass thru the secondary server.Also check for the configuration on the secondary server is same as that of the primary one.
