Subject RE: [users@httpd] Apache & load balancing

We have several server farms up - we have found better luck with an
outside switch doing the work.  With concept it's happening on the
network level and you are able to skip some of the configuration.  Also
with this model it allows you to replicate images out to other servers
for a shorter provisioning time.

I know that it's not what you are after - but its worth looking at.
Take a look at the Nortel Alteon 180e or something of the like - they
also makes some smaller devices that I am sure would work well.  Ebay is
a good source for this - if its mission critical the extra $300 for a
good piece of hardware is well worth it.

The nice thing with this model - you can create as many virtual ips not
tied back to one particular server config - if you had an application
that you wanted out over the top of 20 servers you can do this and still
keep the servers independently processing other applications.  It just
leaves for a more utilized approach to your computing power.  IIS on one
and Apache on the other - not a problem with a SLB model with hardware.
The other nice thing with this is you have the ability to view SNMP in
one location at a switch level - then also a host level for more
troubleshooting options.

Hope that helps if you want more of a robust approach.

Thanks!

Hi All,

	Just wondering if anyone else is using apache in a
load-balanaced
environment and if so how (e.g. apache 1.3 and mod_backhand )

Any advice or experience you have had will be greatly appreciated.

thanks + kind regards,

Kaveh.
