Description dom 2007-03-05 06:49:54 UTC

with the 2.3 the behavior of the balancer module changed. in 2.2, as far as a
balance-member did't response, he was set into error-state.. but now, he tries
for a long time.. of course now, i chnaged the timeout to "1", so he only tries
for one second, and then tries the next one.. BUT: now, with a bigger
balancer-set (i have one with 15 members) he first tries this 15 members, and
the switchs to the 'spare one' [or error-code if not set], and of course, this
happens ever "retry=xx" second.. so if half of the server's didn't response, i
get long answers for nothing.. 

secondly, there is still this problem, that the "<Proxy balancer://xyz>" has to
be set in the virtual host-part IF YOU WANT to use the STICKY Session. This is a
mess, because i have lots of balancers, and therfore one file where all them are
configured. An include in the general section works for 'standard-balncing', but
for using sticky-session, i have to include this file in every
virtual-host-section.. :-(

Thanks for help
