    Hi,

    As Claudio also mentioned this has to do with the client's source address.
    If most of your clients would be behind a proxy this would have a negative
    effect on the load balancing. The hash computed from the source IP will
    always be using the same real server. If you want to use hashing metric for
    persistency, try leastconnections and cookie insert mode. This will give you
    both persistency and balancing.

    Cheers, Mike
