I have HA proxy load balancing across 3 web servers. The session limit is set to 200 and I am seeing the "Curr sessions" hit the limit. Am I losing traffic or are the additional requests queued up and served later?

I know this is not ideal, I am going to bump it up but I am curious to know what is actually happening.

My application behind the load balancer does not depend on sticky sessions.
