    What does sticky session mean in a web-farm scenario?

    Sticky session is a characteristic which provides load balancing solution for web farms for re-routing the request of the session to the machine which first answered the request for that session. This ensures the session persistency in case when the session is routed to other servers. Sticky session causes uneven load distribution across servers.
