CSM persistence question

i all,

in my balancing enviroment i need to sending multiple connection from different client to the same real server.

there is a solution for my problem?cookie?sticky url?

i'm very confused,it's my first configuration in this way.

best regards



Re: CSM persistence question

Your question is not clear.

Do you have a fix set of source addresses and you want all these source addresses should hit the same real server in a server farm?

Re: CSM persistence question


yes,it's strange application.two flow from different client must point to the same real server.

first flow from first client to real server1.

second flow from second client to real server1.

the first and second flow belong to the same application.

someone tell me that it's possible with script layer 7 but.this is real solution?

tks all

Merry Christmas

Re: CSM persistence question


this is possible if there is something the CSM can use to identify the connections that have to go to the same server.

For example, if your application can set a cookie value like server=rs1, then we can create a config based on cookie sticky to achieve what you need.

If there is no such data to identify the server, then it doesn't seem to be possible.

If a human can't tell us how to distinguish a connection that needs to go to server1 from another one, a machine can't do job either.
