- Two physical servers each running Tomcat 7.0.42
- Brocade load balancer in front
The load balancer is set to source IP persistence for 5 minutes. This time can be changed of course.
The thing I don't understand is 5 minutes or 5 hours - at then end that time limit the user can be sent to the other server and lose data stored in the session.
So why do sticky sessions matter when session replication turned on in Tomcat? Is a performance issue?
