IP address persistence

You can base persistence on Destination IP addresses, or on both Source IP and Destination IP Addresses.

Persistence Based on Destination IP Addresses

With destination IP address-based persistence, when the NetScaler appliance receives a request from a new client, it creates a persistence session based on the IP address of the service selected by the virtual server (the destination IP address). Subsequently, it directs requests to the same destination IP to the same service. This type of persistence is used with link load balancing. For more information about link load balancing, see Link Load Balancing.

The time-out value for destination IP persistence is the same as that for source IP persistence, described in Persistence Based on Source IP Address.

To configure persistence based on the destination IP address, see Configuring Persistence Types That Do Not Require a Rule..

Persistence Based on Source and Destination IP Addresses

With source and destination IP address-based persistence, when the NetScaler appliance receives a request, it creates a persistence session based on both the IP address of the client (the source IP address) and the IP address of the service selected by the virtual server (the destination IP address). Subsequently, it directs requests from the same source IP and to the same destination IP to the same service.

The time-out value for destination IP persistence is the same as that for source IP persistence, described in Persistence Based on Source IP Address..

To configure persistence based on both source and destination IP addresses, see Configuring Persistence Types That Do Not Require a Rule..
