load balancing

06-11-2009, 16:41
I've got this set up with the OCO soft monitoring - seems to work, and seems to use sticky IPs - i.e. sending same IP to same server always, but it's not obvious and I haven't been able to find a lot of info about it.

Ideally I'd like something where I could tell the load balancer to stop sending any new traffic to one server, but continue to send existing traffic - i.e. when I'm planning to take one server down & want to wait for the users on that server to log off in their own time rather than breaking their session.

I don't think this is possible though without building my own load balancer with apache or similar. Does any one know better?
