Thanks for all this info, however, we handle 1 million
messages a day, and 20,000+ webmail users, thus
125,000 messages per hour send/recv in 8 hour work
day. Perhaps I am still not entirely sure how
persistance on LVS works, other than that is how long
15 min or whatever, a PC will maintain its connection
through the LVS to a particular real server. The
error just a couple random people are having with
WEBMAIL is "invalid session ID" as though they lost
their connection to the real server (actually a
"message director") they were on. But I don't know if
it is the "message directors" fault, or LVS. We have
4 of these "message directors" which are real servers
behind the LVS.
So is it your suggestion that I have no need to
increase beyond 15 minutes the persistance for HTTP
and HTTPS services ? I don't understand how the
persistance number translates to how many real
servers. We have 4 real servers BTW.
