I know that sticky session are are required for the API and KMC. However, does the Load Balancer configuration in front of the nginx instances need to provide sticky sessions as well?
Not necessarily, no. You do, however, need to make sure all Nginx nodes have access to dash_path and hls_path if you make use of live streaming via Nginx and the RTMP module.
So if you don’t use sticky sessions with nginx, you will need to make sure dash_path and hls_path are shared between nginx nodesm @jess ?
Yes, should work correctly. Do let me know if you have issues though.
