Persistence Records and Cookie Insert



I do not see persistence records when configuring Cookie Method "HTTP Cookie Insert" (regardless of setting session or timer), and do see them with "Cookie Hash" and "Source Address " persistence.



I searched the usual locations and cannot locate an explanation. Does the group here have an explanation?

  • Hi,



    The advantage to using cookie insert persistence is that the cookie is the persistence record. LTM doesn't need to maintain a record in its memory as the client is responsible for providing the cookie which has an encoding of the pool member IP:port.
