    NetScaler, like most good traffic managers, maintains a sticky table for
    failover purposes. This table has a maximum size of 256K entries. This is also
    not an uncommonly sized table for this type of feature.

    is. NetScaler can be configured to keep the information for up to 24 hours, but
    if you have more than 256K sessions, the table the older values will be

    With cookie-based persistence, the time period is not dependent on storing
