Disabled real server connection behavior

 

Information

 

Summary: 

Disabling a real server on the LoadMaster doesn't redirect users to the next available real server.

Environment:

Product: LoadMaster

Version: Any

Platform: Any

Application: Any 

Question/Problem Description: 

Each time a real server is disabled it doesn't redirect the connection's to the next available real server.

Steps to Reproduce:  
Error Message:  
Defect Number:  
Enhancement Number:  
Cause:  
Resolution: 

By default, with persistence enabled within the virtual service new connections can be passed off to the disabled server until the end of drain time.
The drain time by default is set to 300 seconds.

Without persistence enabled, no connections will be dropped once the server is disabled.
The user will need to disconnect from the virtual service on their end.

Configuring Drop At Drain Time End will provide the desired affect.

Once enabled, the existing connections will be dropped once the drain time has been reached.
