I am new to Pound. After going through the documentation, one question arise
in my mind.
Suppose, I am having 10 backend servers and using pound for load-balancing
among them. I am using sessions ( IP), so requests from the same IP are
mapped to the same server. Now, if I add say two more servers in the pool,
the new servers would be having very less load compared to the old servers (
as requests from old ips would be still mapped to old servers, plus the
requests from new IPs would be randomly distributed among ALL the servers ).
Is this the way pound works or am I missing something? Won't it be a good
idea to map the new ips to only the new servers till the load becomes even
among all the servers?
Thanks in Advance
