CSS One armed configuration

I have configured one armed configuration on a CSS11050. I have two web servers 10.1.1.1 and 10.1.1.2 with a vip of 10.1.1.3.

If one of the Server services fails or put into maintenance mode, the css will not failover to the existing service. the vip address has a dns entry. how does the css redirect traffic to this webserver change of services

Re: CSS One armed configuration

If a service fails then no *new* connections are sent to that service but existing connections to that service are allowed to complete.

If the content rule is L5 (using 'url') then the use of the global command 'persistence reset remap' may help. This command allows the CSS to remap HTTP 1.1 persistent connections.

Re: CSS One armed configuration

I bumped the number of servers up to four and this seems to have fixed some of the problems. However when there is only one server remaining in the group(port 80 closed on all other servers), the session seems to hang and never directs the users to the only existing server. Many thnaks for the previous fix

Re: CSS One armed configuration

this is not normal.

If you have only 1 service active, all new connections should redirected to this

server.

Does the CSS sees the services as down (show summary) ?

What kind of keepalive do you have setup ?

If you need further assistance, could you please provide us with your config and a 'sho summary' when only 1 server is active.

Re: CSS One armed configuration

You need to add keepalives to your services. That way the CSS can ping the service and decide if it is up or down.

Re: CSS One armed configuration

the default keepalive is ICMP ping.

So, if you just disable the port 80, the service will still be alive and therefore the CSS will still forward traffic to it.

Configure keepalive for TCP port 80.

use the commands below under the service definition.

keepalive type tcp

keepalive port 80

You can also define a keepalive type of http if you want to check a specific url on the server.
