I have a service where servers upload 20kb xml files to my server.
There is no session, it is a single POST request and that's it. Each individual request is authenticated based on the contents of the xml file.
There are socket related tweaks that I will have to make as during load testing the server exhausts its sockets pool (32K).
Anyhow, I was wondering what things might change when I bring a load balancer into the equation that would round robin requests between 2+ web servers.
Could the load balancer re-use sockets?
Again, just want to be clear, client servers are posting a file over to my server, once the file has been http posted they are 100% completed. Any subsequent http posts will be considered a new 'transaction'.
