CSS advanced balance question

Looking for clarification...Initially I tried to use advance balance cookieurl, unfortunatly Cisco has standardized on an IIS cookie munging scenerio for this and our cookie identifier in the URL is not after the ? in the parameters section.

So as a work around I changed the advanced balancing method to cookies, with a base balance rule of srcip. Now my question is...will the CSS first balance on cookie then fall through to the srcip if no cookie is found?

Re: CSS advanced balance question

the CSS first tries the advanced balance rule and if it is not possible (no cookie present for example) then it depends.

There is a command to tell the CSS what to do :

sticky-no-cookie-found-action ?

loadbalance To use the configured loadbalance method.

redirect The URL to redirect to when no macthed cookie is


reject Reject requests that no matched cookie is detected.

service Specify the service to send the no cookie request

Re: CSS advanced balance question

In this above example with the cookieurl, can it be also work with only url ?

Or is it planned in the near future to except also cookies in front of the ?
