stickyness means new connections get sent to the same backend-server based on some critiria like source ip address or a cookie ...


Persistence means one TCP can connection can carry multiple http requests/responses.

So, you can decide to keep the persistence which means keep the connection to the same server for each request/response or you can break the persistence and break the connection into multiple ones on the backend for each request/response.


You usually want to break persistence to handle proxies that use a single connection for multiple clients.

Thanks for your response...


<< or you can break the persistence and break the connection into multiple ones on the backend for each request/response. >>


Would you use persistence-rebalance for the above?


Thanks again..

Hello Greg,


You are corrcect. Persistance-rebalance will treat every HTTP request within the same TCP connection as an independent request allowing the ACE to forward a request to a different layer 7 rule. As Gilles mentioned it would be ideal to break the connection when clients are coming through a proxy. Also, if the client is coming from a network where TCP optimization is enabled.

Gilles,


Does CSS 11503 supports stickyness? Actually i want to load balance the chat connections on the basis of src ip & port.


Kindly guide me if there is any way to do this type of load balancing.

Simply select the correct advanced-balance method to achieve the type of stickyness that you need.
