How to ensure Tiers / Load Balancing is working?



  • How to check if Load Balancing and/or Failover is working?

    Is it possible to disable one of interfaces programmatically (from control panel)?

    1. If I check off Interfaces -> MyDefaultInterface -> Enable Interface

    Then no any connection possible

    1. If I go to System -> Gateways -> and click green arrow near MyDefaultInterface, turning it dimmed,

    then I am still connecting via default interface (according to whatismyipaddress.com)

    1. If I go to System -> Gateways -> MyDefaultInterface (e) -> Mark Gateway as Down,

    then I am still connecting via default interface (according to whatismyipaddress.com)

    I.e. no any way to turn off one card and see that failover worked.

    Are there any other ways?



  • Gateway status will show you which interface is up or down including gateway groups.



  • It doesn't
