I need to understand better how the Adaptive response predictor, works.
In the site of cisco I found this:
Cisco ACE adds several new intelligent load-balancing predictors.
The Cisco ACE predictor selects a server based on its response time. Response times are calculated over a user-configured number of samples, with the following three measurement options supported:
â¢ SYN-to-SYN-ACK: Server response time between SYN sent from Cisco ACE to SYN-ACK received from server
â¢ SYN-to-Close: Server response time between SYN sent from Cisco ACE to FIN/RST received from server.
â¢ Application Request to Response: Server response time between HTTP request sent from Cisco ACE to HTTP response received from server
The measure of time is related to the traffic that pass trought the ACE or is originating from ACE ?
What is the frequency of this conections ? 8 samples in what time?
This is done by probes or is an extra connection ?
What to choose ( SYN-ACK OR SYN-FIN) ?
What is the consequence of increasing the number o samples?
