Arrowpoint Cookies, Reverse Proxy and Multiplexed Client Requests
I have a reverse proxy which is performing SSL offload and making backend connections to two web servers. Between the reverse proxy and the two webservers, a CSS is in place to load balance between the web servers. There is a requirement for session stickiness on the web servers and since client IP details are lost through the reverse proxy I have used the arrowpoint-cookie method to load balance connections.
However, the reverse proxy seems to make only a handful of connections to the servers compared to the number incoming client connections and we have noticed that stickiness is broken. Now, I would assume this is correct if arrowpoint-cookie makes a load balancing based on the first HTTP get in a tcp stream and not on a per transaction basis AND our reverse proxy is multiplexing client requests. However, I can not convince myself of how the arrowpoint-cookie method actually works.
I wondered if anyone had any insight on this or had experienced similar issues with arrowpoint cookies?
