Subject [users@httpd] How does mod_proxy_balancer know a session is still alive ?
Date Mon, 24 Sep 2012 09:15:25 GMT

I set up a load balancing environment with mod_proxy_balancer, and use
'stickysession' to achieve session stickyness.

I know this module uses a cookie to keep sessions. The question is, how
does it know if a session is still alive ? For example, if there are two
servers behind the balancer, 100 sessions for each of them. If the 100
sessions of the first server have already been closed, will apache still
assume the first server is busy and throw new sessions to the other one ?
