sticky-srcip-dstport

Will this preform the same as the sticky-srcip? Will the hash remain the same? Since the destination port will be the same for all requests to a VIP and servers, the only difference will be the source IP address. What is the benefit of using the dstport? I know sticky-srcip is layer 3 and sticky-srcip-dstport is layer 4, but what does that matter.

Re: sticky-srcip-dstport

this is in the case where the VIP is a layer 3 content rule - no TCP/UDP port.

The the clients can access a VIP on different ports.

Only when the source ip and destination port are the same will the sticky entry be used.

Re: sticky-srcip-dstport

Okay, thanks. So the only time the dstport is used is in a layer 3 rule? If not, why use it? In a layer 4/5 rule, the destination port will always be the same.

correct - it makes no sense to use it for other type of rules.
