Static proximity method

When a virtual server is configured to use the static proximity method, it selects the service that best matches the proximity criteria.

For the static proximity method to work, you must either configure the Citrix ADC appliance to use an existing static proximity database populated through a location file or add custom entries to the static proximity database. After adding custom entries, you can set their location qualifiers. After configuring the database, you are ready to specify static proximity as the load balancing method.

For more details, see the following topics.
