Hello,
What is the difference between failover and loadbalancing in pfsense with 2 web servers with nat form WAN to LAN.

it seem's like loadbalancing with a web servers pool in pfsense work like a realy a failover service for this situation.

How can we test a realy load balancing case for our situation.
Best regards.

no, pfsense is an active/active redundancy solution. the balancing isn't really that good (its based on if the target is connectable (or pingable) from the balancer, not on resource metrics) but given 'n' targets, it will attempt to send requests equally to each server.

to test, just look in the webserver logs - you should see roughly the same number of connections to each.
