In a first exemplary implementation, one or more processor-accessible media include processor-executable instructions that, when executed, direct a system to perform actions including: receiving host status information from multiple hosts; and making load balancing decisions responsive to the received host status information. In a second exemplary implementation, a system includes: session tracking infrastructure that is adapted to acquire session information; and load balancing infrastructure that is adapted to utilize the session information when routing connection requests to multiple hosts. In a third exemplary implementation, one or more processor-accessible media include processor-executable instructions that, when executed, direct a system to perform actions including: acquiring session information for multiple session contexts from one or more applications that established the multiple session contexts; and routing network traffic to the one or more applications responsive to the acquired session information.
