Load Balancer and VIP setup Question: Roundrobin, Hash, Leastconn, or Minmiss?
Posted on 2008-06-16
I'm consulting as project manager and setting up several membership websites which are expected to be heavy traffic.
The hosting company has posed a few of questions and I'm not quite sure how to respond.
First which servers are to be load-balanced? (I assume our "web servers" not content or development servers.)
Second, they want me to select a public IP address or VIP address. I wasn't aware one could choose, but since I must, how do I?
Last, do I have the web servers added to a cluster and have them "roundrobin, hash, leastconn, or minmiss?"
