    Hi All,

     

     I would like to know if service exposed through API Gateway v9.1, do load balancing within themselves? Eg: if there are 4 service instances published, can they do the load balancing between themselves?

     

    Thanks in advance.

    Good afternoon. The gateway expects a load balancer to be positioned in front of it to allow for both fail-over and fault tolerance between nodes in the cluster. As for service in the gateway, would you elaborate some more on this as to the use case as global policies can allow for additional logic to resolve services and the policies have the ability to route to end point based on logical.

     

    Sincerely,
