The current UPMC load balancing is done by IP-based sticky sessions.
This is inefficient with users going through proxies and requests done
by the main portal on behalf of users.
Our load-balancer admin offered to do the load-balancing based on a
parameter in the URL sur as:
http://<sakai instance domain name>/...?server=<serverId>
Can this be done and if it can, how do I do this ?
Please note that each Tomcat server is behind its own apache HTTPD
server and accessed through mod_proxy.
