Inbound load Balancing and adding servers to the pool

  • I have in-bound load balancing working perfectly between two HTTP servers.  I want to add a third HTTP server to the pool, would that cause the SLBD daemon to stop/restart resulting in an brief outage?  Or can I add servers to the pool on the fly and not have the existing connections be affected?

  • It should not bring down already established connections afaik and if it would do so it would only take 5 seconds as this is the interval that slbd checks the servers for availability and reintegrates them as available in the pool.
