Hi folks,

I have searched the archives to determine if LVS has the capability to load
balance based on session cookies embedded in HTTP packets.  That is, if a
packets flows through the load balancer, it can redirect the packet to the
proper realserver (or backend server) based on a session cookie.

While doing the search and viewing the results, it seems that this is
possible with LVS.  However, I'm having a hard time in trying to find
instructions or some guidance on how to establish this.   Can somebody
point me into the right direction where I can do this?     Any learning
experiences or gotchas that we need to be aware of?   Thanks in advanced.
