Load Balancing question
Posted on 2010-08-26
I have a web application that I want people to access on http://webapp.domain.com
The app itself will run on two servers, server1.domain.com and server2.domain.com
I would like there to be load balancing/fault tolerance. I think DNS round robin would only provide load balancing, so understand I need to look into a 'proper' load balancer.
Let's say I used an F5 Load Balancer. What would I need to do in terms of DNS? Do I create a DNS entry for webapp.domain.com and point it to the F5? And configure the F5 to distribute load to either the server1 or server2? Do I need to create any other DNS records?
