Inside load balancing questions?



  • Hi!
    I use PF 1.0.1 with inside load balancing.
    I have few doubts if it works for me.
    I have 80,443,25,465,993,995 behind load balancing on one IP. Also I'd like to LB ftp (20,21,60000-65000, but I'm not sure if it is possible?
    On my servers on ssl ports in logs I get information about failed ssl connections. I guess this is from LB connections. Is it possible to avoid it?
    My set up is: for each port for I create Pool, and later for each port I assign virtual server and Pool.
    Is it possible to create only one Pool (ex.80) and later add multi virtual server or maybe create Alias and put it in one pool? All ports are load balanced between exactly 2 the same machines.
    I know that in new version of Pfsense there is future for stick connections. Does it stick connection to IP or port? I mean if I have net behind NAT and few people connect to my LB servers, will they connect to the same server or in round robin fashion.
    Also does it make sense to update Pfsense to newest version. Does it improve it in any way LB or repair some bugs?

    Regards,
    Hans



  • Aditionaly websites in LB are very slow. What can cause it?

    Seems that it isn't problem with LB but webserver.
