Hmmm. I will have to look into that further. After some initial
reading, that is probably what I need to do.
well, unless it's causing problems, can you just leave it the way it
is? Not everything has to be perfect, it just has to work. Over a
sufficient time period does the load shift around amongst the
realservers or is one machine always with the high load (give it a
lower weight, or try lc/wlc)?
I've been switching back and forth from wrr and wlc to try and get a
feel for which would balance out better in our situation. wrr does
seem to provide more consistency over time. With wlc, one particular
real server was seeing most of the load all of the time. I figured
that since 3 out of the 4 real servers are identical (hardware and
software) that they would all have fairly close loads but given that
the web content is dynamic and it's serving 110 different sites with
different size images, gzip compression, etc; it's expected that there
will some difference in load averages.
I'm just trying to make sure that I'm running it in the most optimized
