Subject [users@httpd] Two machines, load balancing with Proxy?
Date Wed, 22 Sep 2004 04:25:48 GMT
I'm going to put 2 webservers on 2 different locations. First i thought: 
put half of the account op one machine, the other half on the other, so 
that both machines hopefully have the same amount of traffic.

Then a read an article ( about an 
innovative way of making IPv6 webservers with proxies. When i didn't 
really understand that, i searched the Apache Documentation and found 
( on a 
reverse proxy configuration.

Now i'm not really sure if it's possible, but lets say i use the linux 
tool rsync to mirror the 2 webservers on different connections at 
different locations, lets say once an hour or so, and use that described 
reversed proxy, i get a load balancing effect? How should i see that.. 
is it like a client opens the website, and the proxies send the client 
the website contents from 2 connections?

If i understand right, the bandwith for the website is increased, cause 
2 different connections can send at the same time.. (though these 
connections have an upload speed of 1Mbit/s, which would result in some 
more than 1Mbit/s?).

Please let me know where i'm right, and where i'm wrong, or how i should 
see it.

Thanks in advance,

Marvin Vek
