MY STICKY CONFIG
sticky http-cookie JSESSIONID GROUP6
any ideas ?
Thanks in advance
As soon as you enable stickyness you can't see if the box is doing the correct predictor function.
This is because stickyness has a higer importance.
For example, take 2 users, they should be RR to your 2 servers.
But one user open 100 connections very quickly and then nothing and the other user open only 1 connection very hour.
Any command you use will show you that the first rserver got 100 connections and the 2nd one just a few.
You will also see the 2nd one getting all new connections.
And you could also see a single entry in your sticky database once the first user entry times out.
And during this time, ACE is working correctly.
As you can see with a basic example, it is impossible to guarantee even load distribution.
This is the result of stickyness.
Nothing you can do about this.
