I still do not understand this… If I have
- 1 manager node
- 1 logger node
- 2 worker nodes
and I load balance between the two worker nodes, how, if at all, does the manager know if a session is split across multiple worker nodes? The worker nodes (as mentioned before) would have to spit considerable amounts of traffic information back up to the manager node. My load balancer uses 5 tuples to determine where to send traffic for a given session. I need to limit the number of physical servers assigned to this cluster due to budgetary constraints, and ideally, 2 stand alone worker/manager/logger all in one systems would be more doable than 3 or 4 physical systems. I am under the impression that in the previous thread on this, load balancing in this way is impossible since conn tracking wouldn’t work without a manager handling both worker hosts???
