I have a setup question : For a client we have to set up a system with multiple application servers listening for requests. How will the clients pc's (that access through one url) get directed to the application server with the less load on it ? Is there a master/slave config ? Can this be set up on routers/switches ? Any help would be appriciated.
There are many ways of doing this. The best way to accomplish load balancing is to use a load balancing device like radware or resonate.
We have been very successful using resonate to load balance our servers and you can have them come in and to a technical review for free.
Let me know if I can help
I will look into that and keep your offer for help open.
