CloudFlare Load Balancer Steering Policy

I use GeoSteering, I was wondering what this option was.

Its either Random or Hash based.

Based on this:
https://developers.cloudflare.com/load-balancing/additional-options/load-shedding#configure-via-dashboard

I’d think it has to do with how traffic is steered to the origins in that region. I’m not sure why Session Affinity wouldn’t kick in and make sure the same visitor stayed connected to the same origin.

I think the idea is that if you want origins to randomly serve the request, you can choose random or use hash to have a hash for session affinity.

I think this solves my question, thanks for the input. :slight_smile:
