Cookie Persistence and Source Address Affinity
We are currently facing problem with equal load distribution on F5 1500 LTM.
Virtual server is configured for Cookie based persistence and the fallback method is Source Address Affinity. We can see 4 times more connections going to a single node at a point in time. It seems like the cookie persistence is not functioning and hence falling back to source address affinity. Because when I goto 'Statistics->Local Traffic->Persistence Records' I can see hundreds of source address affinity records. Should the source address
affinity table get populated even if the cookie based persistence is working fine.
How can I ensure the cookie persistence is working correctly.
