Cisco CSS 11501 load balancing questions

We have obtained Web hosting from a provider that uses the Cisco CSS 11501 as a load balancer. The configuration is two page/Web servers and one database server. Since their support has not been adequate, I have several questions about the load balancer; what to expect.

The first question whether it is normal behavior to have traffic from one IP to always be directed to the same Web server.

The second question involves the response to our load testing. When we run a load test (16,000 requests), all but a dozen are directed to the same page server. Is this proper? Thank you for any light you can cast on these questions.

Re: Cisco CSS 11501 load balancing questions

Hi,

What is probably appening is that the load balance is being made based on source ip.

Take a look at this document:

Hi Todd,

Can't answer your questions - but the CSS experts all hang out on the forum:

--> Networking Solutions --> Application Networking

If you re-post there you should get the responses you need,
