I am using  ipvsadm v1.26 2008/5/15 (compiled with popt and IPVS v1.2.1) on
a Ubuntu server with kernel 3.5.0-17-generic on a x86_64 platform

I have the following network config
eth0      Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr 00:0c:29:d7:cd:a6
          inet addr:  Bcast:  Mask:

And using the following ipvsadm config
-A -u ubuntusrv.localdomain:sip -s rr -p 40 pe sip
-a -u ubuntusrv.localdomain:sip -r -m -w 1
-a -u ubuntusrv.localdomain:sip -r -m -w 1

When I make a sip call to (ubuntusrv.localdomain), I see the
following 2 connections being set up

 ipvsadm -Lcn --persistent-conn
IPVS connection entries
pro expire state       source             virtual            destination
     pe name          pe_data
UDP 00:49  UDP sip
UDP 04:41  UDP

Apparently because of the 2nd entry in the table
UDP 04:41  UDP
All my successive calls to are going to the same real server,
although the sip call id is different.
Since I am using Round Robin scheduler, I would have expected every call to
go to another real server.

How come this plain UDP entry is created? I would have expected only the
entry with the sip pe data
