[lvs-users] Fw: Is it possible to completely handoff the connection to the realserver?

Hi All,

This is the scenario,

I have a cluster of streaming media servers set up using LVS to load balance between them.

It works fine when all the clients are viewing videos but with any clients that are actually broadcasting to the servers, their entire session is going through the director node before getting to the real server so the incoming bandwidth on the director is quite high.

Is it possible to handoff the connection completely to the realserver after the initial connection?  The streaming connections are basically a single socket connection which stays open for the duration of the session so there is really no need for it all to go through the director anyway.

Thanks in advance,
