Load balancing and Failover + LB ratio



  • Hi all,
    only two simple question

    CAN A LOAD BALANCING CONFIGURATION BECOME AUTOMATICALLY A FAILOVER CONFIGURATION?
    Is the 1.2RC3 enough stable and can realize Policy based routing + load balancing +failover ?

    If i start configuring the policy based routing can it automatically switch to a failover if a link goes down or should i do it manually ? If so should i rewrite the output rules? "

    LOAD BALANCING RATIO 3:1
    Can i set the load balancing ratio between the two lans?
    (example: 3 connection over the fastest link and 1 over the slower)
    Any clue suggestion in LB about skype or voip traffic?

    thank you very much.

    Mik



  • If you want to failover policy routed items you need to create multiple failover pools, this has been discussed previously, so if you need details please search.

    Ratios can be configured by creating a lb pool with multiple entries for the same line, ie-
    dsl
    cable
    cable
    cable

    Then it should round robin between the four entries, Hitting the cable 75% of the time. Not that I've setup pools that way, usually having roughly equal connections…
