Configuring Persistence Types That Do Not Require a Rule

Aug 31, 2016

To configure persistence, you must first set up a load balancing virtual server, as described in Setting Up Basic Load Balancing. You then configure persistence on the virtual server.

To configure persistence on a virtual server by using the command line interface

At the command prompt, type the following commands to configure persistence and verify the configuration:

  • set lb vserver <name> -PersistenceType <type> [-timeout <integer>]
  • show lb vserver

Timeout is the time period for which a persistence session is in effect. Default value: 2. Maximum value: 1440.

Example

set lb vserver Vserver-LB-1 -persistenceType SOURCEIP 
 
show lb vserver
Note: For IP-based persistence, you can also set the persistMask parameter.

To configure persistence on a virtual server by using the configuration utility

  1. Navigate to Traffic Management > Load Balancing > Virtual Servers, and open the virtual server.
  2. In Advanced Settings, select Persistence, and specify a persistence type other than RULE.
