Thank you for your reply.
The directors VIP is on eth0, eth0 is connected to a 100 megabit switch.
The directors gatewayIP is on bond0, which is a mode 4 bonded interface
(eth1 & eth3). bond0 is connected to a stacked gigabit switch (each
interface to a different switch).
The realserver is connected to the same gigabit switches with a mode 4
bonded interface (eth0 & eth1).
Because the testing through the VIP goes over a 100 megabit switch, I've
also connected a 100 megabit switch to the gigabyte switch. The
'internal' test machine is connected to this switch, so both test a
through one 100 megabit switch.
I just redid the tests with the same machine (I previously tested with 2
different test machines). I've also included figures for a single
machine, online, with the same apache setup (we are on a 2 megabit
Direct on RS Director Online
http 0,025 s 0,06 s 0,2 s
https 0,7 s 4,7 s 2,8 s
Looks to me like https through the LVS director is too slow, and I
probably misconfigured something... Hope this gives the gurus some more
