Design Help-> Persistance Rebalance in ACE

Hi,

I need one suggestion from you.

I have 2 servers that need to be load balanced.

Real Server 1 IP Address: 10.10.10.10

Realo Server 2 IP Address: 10.10.10.11

VIP: 10.10.10.100

My requirement is: Real Server will raise request (loopback request as per Oracle Guys) towards the VIP. VIP will handover the request to the same server from where the original request was made.

Real Server 1--> Request--> VIP-->Real Server 1

Real Server 2--> Request--> VIP-->Real Server 2

Is this possible? If Yes, then whether some thing to be configured on ACE??

Kindly suggest..

Re: Design Help-> Persistance Rebalance in ACE

Hello,

Yes, you can do this.  See example below:

  • Clients coming in on VLAN 251 connect to the VIP and are load balanced without source NAT.
  • Servers connecting to the VIP on VLAN 451 are load balanced AND source NAT'd because they match both class-maps.

access-list ANYONE line 10 extended permit ip any any

rserver host SERVER_01
  ip address 192.168.1.11
  inservice
rserver host SERVER_02
  ip address 192.168.1.12
  inservice
rserver host SERVER_03
  ip address 192.168.1.13
  inservice

serverfarm host REAL_SERVERS
  rserver SERVER_01
    inservice
  rserver SERVER_02

  rserver SERVER_03

ip route 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 172.16.51.1

Hope this helps,

Re: Design Help-> Persistance Rebalance in ACE

Thanks Sean for your reply. But my requirement is different:

Let me furnish my requirements:

2-3 Oracle Instances (Oracle 10G) are installed on same Server. There are 2 servers.

Server 1 will raise Loopback request to the ACE VIP & VIP will return back the same request to Server 1

Server 2 will raise Loopback request to the ACE VIP & VIP will return back the same request to Server 2.

Do u suggest something to be done in ACE for such scenario??

Kindly suggest.

Rgds,

Partha

Re: Design Help-> Persistance Rebalance in ACE

Sure, you can still use the config I gave you and modify it a bit.  You can put each server in its own serverfarm.  Then you can load balance to its own serverfarm based on the source-ip address.  With the example I provided, i'm using source-ip to do source NAT.  In your case you would use source-ip to do NAT and to load balance to the serverfarm that the server resides.

Make sense?

Sean
