The MIB for managing Server Load Balancing Manager(s), and products supporting Server Load Balancing(SLB) features. This MIB extends the tables(as appropriate) that are defined in CISCO-SLB-MIB and CISCO-SLB-EXT-MIB. Some of the functionalities supported are: * Real Server Configuration with real server identified by a name * Real Server configuration in a Server Farm. * Health Probe Configuration in a real server. * Sticky Configuration for HTTP Header, HTTP Cookie and Client IP Address, SSL(Secure Socket Layer). Acronyms and terminology: SLB : Server Load Balancing When a client initiates a connection to virtual server, the system load balances the connection to the chosen real server based on the user configuration. SLB is important for Scaling of Web Services and for traditional serverices such as DNS, FTP etc. Server Farm : Contains cluster of Real Server Virtual Server : Group of Real Servers Real Server : Real Servers are physical devices assigned to a server farms. Real servers provide services that are load balanced. Health Probe : The mechanisms to monitor the health of real servers. sticky ConnectIons : Sticky connections limit traffic to the individual real servers by allowing multiple connections from the same client to stick (or attach) to the same real server using source IP addresses, source IP subnets, cookies, and the secure socket layer (SSL) or by redirecting these connections using Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP) redirect messages. Sticky connection feature also permits coupling of the services that are handled by more than one virtual server. cookie : A cookie is a small data structure used by a server to deliver data to a Web client and request that the client store the information. In certain applications, the client returns the information to the server to maintain the state between the client and the server.
