Consider the following setup:

  • 2 relay servers in DMZ managing Mobilink and Afaria connections
  • 1 F5) hardware loadbalancer in front.
  • Afaria , Mobilink manuals tend to mention that 'sticky sessions' should be implemented on the LB, but never mention specifics. Does this mean 'any kind' of sticky session?

The Relay Server doesn't specifically need any type of sticky sessions from a Load Balancer. In a properly configured Relay Server environment, any Relay Server in a farm will know which backend server to pass the HTTP packet to based on the ias-rs-sessionid cookie (or lack thereof) in the HTTP headers.

There were cases with older versions of the Relay Server where if a client made concurrent HTTP reqests from different sockets on the same machine using the same ias-rs-sessionid cookie to a Relay Server farm, you might require stickiness on the load balancer.
