Load Balancing Question
groenman last edited by
I have a setup of three connections… each interface has been setup with a static IP, gateway etc. I've setup a load balancing pool as per documentation and would like to clarify/know if I understand this correctly.
WAN - DSL1
OPT1 - DSL2
OPT2 - DSL3
I have the following under Services -> Load Balancer;
Name Type Gateways Status Description
LoadBalanced gateway (balance) opt1 & opt2 Online DSL2 & DSL3 Load Balanced
DSL2ToDSL3 gateway (failover) opt1 & opt2 Online DSL2 Failover to DSL3
DSL3ToDSL2 gateway (failover) opt2 & opt1 Online DSL3 Failover to DSL2
If I for example, add one more failover pool, with only DSL1's configuration, does that mean that should DSL2 & DSL3 be down, DSL1 would take over? Or do I have this wrong? The config would look something like this;
DSL23ToDSL1 gateway (failover) wan Online DSL2 & DSL3 Failover to DSL1
What I'd like to achieve is to have DSL2 & DSL3 load balanced with failover, but if both of them are down, have DSL1 route all traffic...
Hope I make sense with the above, any comments, suggestions and advise much appreciated!
