Cookie based stateful session extension (proto)
This extension allows the session state to be tracked via cookies.
This extension first encodes the address of the upstream host selected by the load balancer
set-cookie response header with the cookie configuration.
when new requests are incoming, this extension will try to parse the specific upstream host
address by the cookie name. If the address parsed from the cookie corresponds to a valid
upstream host, this upstream host will be selected first. See stateful session filter.
For example, if the cookie name is set to
sticky-host, envoy will prefer
as the upstream host when the request contains the following header:
When processing the upstream response, if
22.214.171.124:80 is indeed the final choice the extension
does nothing. If
126.96.36.199:80 is not the final choice, the new selected host will be used to
update the cookie (via the
set-cookie response header).
