Subject [jira] [Commented] (GUACAMOLE-102) Load balancing based on resource
Date Wed, 07 Jun 2017 01:23:18 GMT


Michael Jumper commented on GUACAMOLE-102:

Next steps, I think, are:

* Look at implementing additional algorithms - Round Robin and Weighted Round Robin shouldn't
be too hard to do. I'm not entirely sure where the proper place is to start to break out the
code for different LB algorithms - any thoughts?

I would say, as far as this issue is concerned, scope is satisfied. RR and WRR sound like
great ideas, but that should probably be a separate issue.

I think the only thing remaining here before this issue can be reasonably closed is the documentation
for the new column in the manual (

Still have not settled on the best way for dynamically updating the weights of the individual
connections. Does this live within the Guacamole Client code? Or is it a separate daemon or
piece of code? Or maybe provide REST endpoints in the Guacamole Client code for updating the
weights, but leave it up to the end user to implement the load checking/updating? Any opinions

I think the only way would be for the service measurement component to live separately, in
this case updating the connection weights in the database based on some measurement of load.

REST endpoints sound like a good option (and is possible now as of GUACAMOLE-289), but that
would need to be done carefully. You wouldn't want unauthorized services/users to be able
to update things.

>          Issue Type: New Feature
>          Components: guacamole, guacamole-auth-jdbc, guacamole-auth-jdbc-mysql, guacamole-auth-jdbc-postgresql,
guacamole-client, RDP
>    Affects Versions: 0.9.10-incubating
>         Environment: CentOS Linux 7 (Core)
> Linux 3.10.0-327.10.1.el7.x86_64
>            Reporter: Werner Novak
>            Assignee: Nick Couchman
>            Priority: Minor
> Implementation of an resource based (CPU, Memory, I/O, Loggedin User) balancing in opposite
to the current implemented guacamole connections round robin. This is needed because of an
large RDP infrastructure (300+ TS), where the terminal server been accessed via multiple RDP
load balancers during migration.
> A prototype has been developed in a guacamole fork
