    Is it a good idea to have single loadbalancer to have multiple groups ?

    Arun Raj Expert

      Hi,

       

      We are having 5 Server-Groups each groups contains 2 nodes each in two different hosts. More over, we are using Apache as our front end.

       

      Right now, I have configured a single loadbalancer in the apache level. My Configuration is following.

       

      Listen 127.0.0.1:7777

      Maxhost 1000

      Maxnode 1000

       

      <IfModule manager_module>

        <VirtualHost 127.0.0.1:7777>

          ManagerBalancerName myservicelb

          ServerName 127.0.0.1

            <Location />

                  Order deny,allow

                  Allow from all

            </Location>

            KeepAliveTimeout 300

            MaxKeepAliveRequests 0

            EnableMCPMReceive

            AllowDisplay On

            <Location /mod_cluster_manager>

                  SetHandler mod_cluster-manager

                  Order deny,allow

                  Deny from all

                  Allow from *.domain.com

           </Location>

           <Location /server_status>

                  SetHandler server-status

                  Order deny,allow

                  Deny from all

                  Allow from *.domain.com

           </Location>

        </VirtualHost>

      </IfModule>


      I have just changed my ip address into loopback address.

       

      Applications are working. But Having no idea whether I have done a good configuration. Is it a good idea to have a single LoadBalancer for a multiple groups. I have deployed 2 or 4 applications in each groups.
