load-balancing by application version

Hi there. I have a pair of CSS-11501's that I'm using for load-balancing incoming connections for a specific software application. We have 2 versions of the software that connect to the same TCP port on the server side. Is there any way to have the CSS distinguish between the application versions so I can direct traffic to different clusters based on version, without the customer knowing?

no way with the CSS.

The CSS can understand http but not other applications.

The ACE module in its next software release will be able to catch data on any application and make an action like loadbalance with it.

Thanks for the information.

Looks like the ACE module would work well. Will that work in conjunction with the GSS to do datacenter-datacenter failover?
