LTM - IP Fowarder Performance issues (Stateless Router config)
Wondering if anyone else has issues with using an IP Forwarder in the manner described in this article (Specifically - Emulating stateless IP routing with BIG-IP LTM forwarding virtual servers):
Here's the scenario....
VLAN attached behind the BIG-IP, which has the web servers on.
MSSQL servers sat on a VLAN reachable through the BIG-IP.
The connections all work, just if SQL traffic isn't routed through the BIG-IP, it works fine. Otherwise, behind the BIG-IP, there is severe delays.
I'd suggest it be a good idea not to route this through the BIG-IP, but I wondered what the F5 communities' take on this would be.
In short....Simple IP Forwarder (Stateless) for mssql traffic... Good or bad idea?
