Subject RE: [users@httpd] How to define Lbfactor in case of lbmethod = byrequests & lbmethod = bytraffic
Date Wed, 23 Mar 2011 05:32:13 GMT

Hi,
 
But if there are two machines A & B. How Apache will come to know which one is stronger?

Do we need to define it somewhere?
 
Best Regards,
Tushar

= bytraffic

i don't think lbfactor is related to the method but more to the servers hardware:

lbfactor - weighed-round-robin load balancing where high lbfactor means stronger machine (that
is going to handle more requests) 

so if A and B are identical in terms of hardware you use same lbfactor

Hi  Experts,


We are setting up load balacing with Apache


Apache will pass request to servers A & B.



Now if I choose lbmethod=byrequest or bytraffic, how I will set lbfactor?


How Apache server will come to know how much request to pass to server A & server B?
