Can you do Content-Based load balancing with NLB ?
Posted on 2004-10-25
Looking for some guidance with NLB. I've never used it before but I have used other load balancers like Netegrity's Central Dispatch.
We will have a 2-node Win 2003 cluster using IIS for the websites. We will have video files that need to be served off of only 1 of the machines for various reasons.
With Netegrity's Central Dispatch, you can set up load balancing rules that state "If the file being requested is of this type, send the request to this machine." I believe they call it "Content-Based" load balancing.
Can NLB be made to do this same type of routing ? If so, how ?
