Sticky Cookies and Sticky Fingers

A load balancer deployed with OpenSSO must support sticky sessions. A sticky session specifies that once a session is created by a specific OpenSSO instance subsequent requests from the user will be routed to that same instance to preserve session information. If you have a deployment with a load balancer between 2 instances of OpenSSO, you can configure the load balancer for cookie stickiness by defining the value of the com.iplanet.am.lbcookie property to the name of the cookie; amlbcookie is the default name of the sticky cookie. When cookie stickiness is enabled, you will get better performance from OpenSSO by avoiding back channel communications, and the OpenSSO console will work properly behind the load balancer. More information on cookies and sticky sessions can be found in the official Access Manager 7.1 documentation. And since sticky cookies give you sticky fingers, here's a live video of The Rolling Stones singing a song (which shall remain nameless in this entry) from their 1971 LP, Sticky Fingers.
