Comment 1 Arvind iyengar 2021-09-06 05:09:43 UTC
Verified in "4.8.0-0.ci.test-2021-09-06-042332-ci-ln-t6rlkv2-latest" version. With this version, it is observed that the algorithm now gets set to "source" type by default:
oc get clusterversion              
NAME      VERSION                                                  AVAILABLE   PROGRESSING   SINCE   STATUS
version   4.8.0-0.ci.test-2021-09-06-042332-ci-ln-t6rlkv2-latest   True        False         9m9s    Cluster version is 4.8.0-0.ci.test-2021-09-06-042332-ci-ln-t6rlkv2-latest

Inside router pod:

sh-4.4$ env | grep -i balance

# Secure backend, pass through
backend be_tcp:test1:passth-route
  balance source

  hash-type consistent
  timeout check 5000ms
