Session Affinity options

Hi PSC Community,

This is regarding the F5 load balancer setup.As per our network team F5 does not support cookie based session affinity without terminating SSL at load balancer. This will introduce bandwidth issues at F5 as SSL termination will consume F5 bandwidth. So we have below options:

1. Terminate SSL at F5 and then re-encrypt data before sending it to the worker node.

2. Make F5 pass through from SSL point of view but that does not support cookie based authentication. So we would have to implement source IP based session affinity. As per Pega documentation Pega does not support any other session affinity apart from cookies, so will this implementation even work.

Looking out for inputs/experiences from PSC community based on their implementations of F5 load balancer.
