Ahh, now that's a luxury I don't have. The servers behind my LB need
external persistence control because they store session data locally (in
memory). "poorly designed" and "legacy" would seem to apply from the LB
admin perspective, and from a scalability perspective as taking out/down
a server by definition breaks existing sessions.
