I have an ASP.NET Web App (not web role) deployed to Azure that's being load-balanced. I'm using Redis to handle shared Session data.
I'd like to provide, for testing purposes, a way to trigger a page load to use a different server. The goal is to output the Server's local hostname (already done) and watch it change while also watching the Session data remain the same.
I'm fine if this "different server" only means "resolve the load balancing again but wipe the stickiness from my current server" (i.e. there's only a 66% chance to get a new server with my 3-server scaling). I'm also fine if this is a client-side or server-side solution. However, I don't want it to be a hands-on infrastructure solution (i.e. I want to avoid needing to get a browser on each of all 3 servers then drop the distribution down to 1 server and watch two browsers transition seamlessly to the one leftover server). I want this to be controlled by the testers, assisted by functionality in the app created by the developers.
Is something like this possible?
