UDP Gateway Support
UDP gateways require connection stickiness in order to continue communicating with Gateway Server instances when they get recreated or when the nodes on which Gateway Servers are running are replaced. The most straightforward way to do this is to connect UDP gateways directly to the Gateway Server service via an external Load Balancer. This depends on the settings of the external Load Balancer that is used. The implementation details are specific to the external environment and is hence out of scope for this documentation. Please check the documentation of the Load Balancer and run tests to ensure that gateway communication is not lost on server updates.
