Akamai and OneConnect



Does anyone use Akamai with F5 LTM OneConnect?


Based on Akamai link


Akamai prefer idle timeout 301 sec. I thought this is idle timeout on oneconnect? but someone else say it is tcp idle timeout.


Another say it is http keepalive timeout? since we use SNAP automap, that makes me think F5 ltm is a proxy, maybe someone could shed some light.

  • F5 LTM is a proxy, with separate client and server side connections and timeouts.


    You need to use OneConnect with an aggregated clientside connection like Akamai because it internally detaches the connection after each individual request. This allows each request in the connection to be correctly persisted based on client IP or load-balancing cookie.
