Our web servers are hosted on a 3rd party network (which our network is directly tied to). Meaning we can get to our servers at the 3rd party like we would servers sitting in our building.
Anyway, we have a load balancer and 2 web servers (let's call then ws1 and ws2).
All of our websites (www.oursite.com
), obviously, goes through the LB and directs the traffic to either WS1 or WS2. If we want to bypass the load balancer, we can go to ws1.oursite.com or ws2.oursite.com.
So, here's the problem.
From internally only, if I try to go to www.oursite.com
, the sites don't load. They just spin and spin and spin. We're seeing some of the HTML come back, but it doesn't serve up the whole page.
If I go to ws1.oursite.com or ws2.oursite.com, everything loads as it should. Again, this is only happening internally...external users are not seeing any issues.
I'm not 100% convinced it's the Load Balancer causing the issue, but it sure seems that way since the LB receives the request and then sends the content back to the browser.
We are all really stumped here. Short of rebooting the Load Balancer, does any one have any insights or ideas? Thanks in advance!
