Apache is not a load balancer.

I am not aware of a third party module that adds balancing functionality
(try searching the web or http://modules.apache.org/).

You may wish to look at http://www.apsis.ch/pound/ for a http/https load
balancer/proxy. There is an entire commercial industry dedicated to this
function that you can research as well.

Cheers,

Subject: [users@httpd] RE: Load balancing among remote proxies.



Hi,
 I want to load balance the www proxy requests with a cluster of proxy
servers. If I do a NAT based load balancing, then there can be some
failed requests when a remote proxy goes down. 
 
Instead I can use Apache load balancer in the front with clusters of
proxies at the back. But currently ProxyRemote directive can only take
one proxy. It can't take a balancer:// 

Is there a way to realize this with Apache? 

Thanks,
MMS.
