Local Director + SSL

I have to implement Load balancing for several servers that require SSL, which means all SSL connections should terminate on Web server farm. I'm thinking of using Local Director. One problem is to be sure that clients will always get the same server while completing, for example, online form, and I know that this could be done with sticky option in SSL configuration for LD. What I'm really interesting is performance. Should anyone have experience with LD+SSL, any suggestions would be great.

Re: Local Director + SSL


first - you can use as LocalDirector as ArrowPoint (11000 Cisco switches) well. There's, of course, another options (f5, alteon, foundry, etc). Go - there's mailing list for using load balancing technologies - i'm personally don't use the SSL on our ArrowPoint - but i've seen a big discussion about it there.

Hope it helps.
