TCP profile and Idle Timout
Hoping someone can help me identify why the expected RST is not being sent. I have an issue with long running AJAX sessions running on my web servers. We recently switched from LVS to bigip LTMs, and rather than figure out a solution in our application code, wanted to see if the idle timeout on the F5 would help us. In a test environment, I have a tcp profile set to enable reset on timeout and a value of 120 seconds. I start a session for a client, and then browse away and watch the idle time climb. Eventually hits 360 seconds (even though a b client x.x.x.x idle timeout shows 120) where my php code closes the session with a FIN, ACK. Don't know where else to check on my system as to why it won't send a rst when the idle time hits 120 on the session.
Thanks for all the help.
