Managing Users In A Server Farm - ASP.NET General

Hello Everyone, I have searched for answers to this question and have found very little to go on. The question is, what is the best way to keep track of users in a load balanced/clustered environment? For example, I have just logged in to MyApplication.com, and have been directed to Webserver1. I make a request to the server again and the request is directed to Webserver2. How can I keep the current user on Webserver1 after they have initially been directed there? Thanks...

    Default Managing Users In A Server Farm

    Hello Everyone,

    I have searched for answers to this question and have
    found very little to go on. The question is, what is the
    best way to keep track of users in a load
    balanced/clustered environment? For example, I have just
    logged in to MyApplication.com, and have been directed to
    Webserver1. I make a request to the server again and the
    request is directed to Webserver2. How can I keep the
    current user on Webserver1 after they have initially been
    directed there?

    Thanks

    Depending on the load balancer you use, there is typically an "affinity"
    setting - this makes it so when the client hits server1 - they stay on
    server1.

    But my question would be, why do you care? (hands on hips) Your not using
    Session variables - are you??? :o)

    What's the use of a WebFarm then?
    You just need a load balancer only
