ace connection limit

Unanswered Question

I  would like to limit the overloading of servers and redirect to a backup  server if the first is full. I thought to use  "max-connect" and "backup-reserved".

Now I  would also ensure that if the client is already on the platform he  continued to surf and not be impacted by the max-connect.

The aim is to focus clients on the farm and put on hold the  new.
To know that a client is already  on the platform I thought to use the sticky.

Do not know if  you know of a solution to my need

Do you mean the 'conn-limit' command? I didn't find "max-connect" and "backup-reserved" in the command reference.

Sticky is a good idea. Don't forget to create a resource class for it.

yes, it's conn-limit sorry and backup-reserved is backup-rserver (problem copy paste ).

I already used sticky with insert cookie, but when the server is full the client go to the new server.

Resource class :  you thought the ressource class on the admin context ?

It's not going to work.

A rserver in maxconn state is considered dead and therefore no new connections can be sent to that server, even if sticky entries exist.

Charly, there is no way to prioritized connected users.
