What are non sticky sessions?

Some situations require that sessions be ‘non-sticky’, which means that client requests are directed to any server in a cluster of application servers rather than returning to the same server with each request for a given client.

How do I get rid of sticky sessions?

An application can get rid of sticky sessions by using an external service for keeping its state. See the example below. Each server performs actions, saving the process of each task or request to a shareable resource, like MySQL or Redis, making it available to all other servers of our infrastructure.

Is sticky session load balancing?

Enabling sticky sessions on a load balancer

  1. Ensure that both web servers have the same machine key.
  2. Ensure that the websites have been precompiled before deployment. For serialisation of objects by ASP.NET State Service.
  3. Ensure that the application path on the iis metabase is identical on both web servers.

What is the difference between NodePort and LoadBalancer Kubernetes?

NodePort wins on simplicity, but you need to open firewall rules to allow access to ports 30,000 to 32,767, and know the IPs of the individual worker nodes. LoadBalancer when on a public cloud, or supported by MetalLB, works great with the service being able to control the exact port it wants to use.

What is the difference between Sticky sessions and non-sticky loadbalancer?

To summarize, In case of Sticky Sessions, all your requests will be directed to the same physical web server while in case of a non-sticky loadbalancer may choose any webserver to serve your requests.

How does mod_jk work with sticky session?

With sticky session, mod_jk routes the request to the Tomcat which generated the session. For the previous scenario, step2 goes to Tomcat#1 although mod_jk is working in load balancing.

What is the difference between Sticky session and Session object?

Sticky : only single session object will be there. Show activity on this post. When your website is served by only one web server, for each client-server pair, a session object is created and remains in the memory of the web server. All the requests from the client go to this web server and update this session object.
