Identity Suite 14.3 vapp - Load Balance

  • 1.  Identity Suite 14.3 vapp - Load Balance

    Posted 08-08-2019 07:09 PM
    Hi Team,
    Based on docops documentation, there is an embedded proxy that provide load-balancing with round-robin and session stickiness (based on the client source IP)...

    If we have 3 nodes of Identity Suite(with IP and IM installed), node1,node2 and node3.
    Q1. Does this mean that, if i access node1 ip address, it will automatically load balance to node2 and node3 ?
    Q2. Is there a virtual IP to be configure for this load balance ?

    regards,
    William

    vAPP has a built-in  webserver/proxy that transparently load balances. The web proxy forwards requests on a round-robin basis to the cluster nodes and to running nodes for failover.


    You can point your users to just one node for IP or IM, etc. It doesn't matter which one you point to--the proxy will do the load balancing and failover.  Note you won't see any URL change in the browser, so the only way you know which node you've hit is to check the logs.

    Q1: Yes

    Q2: I am not aware of additional configurations.  Await another community member to review.

    Thank you.
