I want to use Nginx with a socket.io app with TLS/SSL termination at the load balancer. Is it possible to use the
ip_hash directive to do sticky loadbalancing in combination with TLS/SSL termination? My application only uses HTTPS.
I could not find any resource except this article which says sticky loadbalancing isn't applicable with TLS/SSL and I'm confused!
IP Hash (available for HTTP only) is a predefined variant of the Hash method, in which the hash is based on the client’s IP address. You set it with the ip_hash directive.
