Description of problem:
When configuring piranha to use persistance:
persistent = 20
quiesce_server = 1
a failover to another real server does not happen.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.on a test machine run watch lynx --dump virtualserverip
2.shut down the server lynx connects to
Actual Results: Connection refused
Expected Results: HTTP 200 OK
after removing the persistent setting the failover of the real server happens as
This only affects preexisting persistent connections. After failover, try
connecting from a *different* machine. After the persistence timeout, even the
previously connected machine will get routed elsewhere.
If it makes sense for another machine to take over a persistent connection, then
you don't really need persistence. If there is a valid reason to use
persistence then you probably want the observed behavior.
