Hi Experts,

We are planning to implement F5 on two tomcat web servers for load balancing and SSL.

While configuring F5 on tomcat may i know the best practices for below items on F5.

1) Persistence?

2) Timeouts/Sessions?

3) Cookies?

from BOE perspective, the only requirements in relation to F5 are :
session persistence has to be set. (source IP or cookie based)
timeout should allow longest report to run
F5 should not do any caching or filtering.

That's it.

F5 specifics on how to do that should be asked on F5/Cisco forums.

Hi Dennis-is it suggestible to implement SSL using F5 (or) to do manually on on each tomcat server.


If I'd be doing this I'd terminate SSL on F5 and leave tomcats alone.
But in secured deployments, you'd have to do it on both.
