We currently have an environment with CSS running in routed mode. We are building a new data center with 6509s and CSM-S. My question is what is the best mode to run the CSM-S in routed or one-arm and why?
What do you recommend when the traffic flows from the load balanced server are significant?
ie: you are using Oracle application and database servers, load balancing http and https to the app servers. There is significant traffic flow from the app server to the database servers, such that the load balancer in a 2-armed configuration(particularly a CSS11501 w/ 8 10/100 interfaces and a single 1000Base-T interface) would be a significant bandwidth bottleneck.
Sam, from what I have been told and read, if your server traffic is coming back thru the CSS 11501, in your case, that routed mode isn't the best solution. In my case all my web to app to DB traffic is happening on the backside of the web server. That is to say our web servers have two interfaces, one facing the CSS and one facing the app/DB layer so none of that traffic comes back through the CSS(CSM).
