It is not necessary for you to be able to see your request going through different pages in order to confirm the redirections. You may not be able to see the redirections or HTTP302s with your bare eyes from within the application.
Your app might be correctly doing those redirections.
In Silk Performer, the default redirection numbers are set to 5 or 6(might be 5). You have to change that to 11 or higher through the System Profile to adjust according to your needs.
Again...yes it is true that more the redirections more are the chances for your app to become latency and bandwidth sensitive due to more transaction and data volume.
