What is affinity?

Can you tell me more about affinity?
If you're talking about session affinity, IBM defines it as "a term that refers to application configurations where a client is always connected to the same server. Session affinity disables workload management after an initial connection by forcing a client's requests to always go to the same server."

If you're thinking about cookie affinity, IBM says cookie affinity is "defined by rules that apply to an entire cluster of application servers. This is a technique to force clients to remain pegged or stuck to a particular server.

My suggestion is to go to the search results for "affinity" to find the right answer to your question.

Hope that helps.
