Subject Re: [users@httpd] Load Balancing - 2 Active nodes & 1 Inactive until threshold
Date Sat, 05 Sep 2015 04:10:54 GMT
Not sure if this is what you're looking for, but you can use the 'max'
parameter per member to set the limit of connections and on the last member
use the 'status=+H' parameter to put it into a hot standby mode.
