Can session persistence time impact load balancing


I am encountering an issue where a business owner reports that application traffic is not being balanced as expected. She mentions that when one service is stopped, the F5 system does not redirect traffic to the other service.

To troubleshoot, I reviewed the monitors to ensure they are appropriately configured. They are set to monitor service ports directly, rather than relying on ICMP ping.

I also examined the custom Persistence Profile we created, which has a timeout setting of 3600 seconds.

Could this timeout setting be influencing the system's ability to redirect traffic to an operational server when one is stopped? In other words, might clients not be forwarded to the functional server until the persistence record expires?

Thank you,
