Load balancing vsftpd
hey everyone... I have ftp server setup on two machines and they share a access to common files mounted on the network . . I needed some help on how I should setup a load balancer which would split up the traffic amongst the 2 nodes using some algorithm. need help asap
What's the reason for load balancing? Redundancy, performance, or something else?
Also, are you using a specific hardware load balancer appliance, or are you looking for some way to do it in software?
Basically, I need it for performance purpose. . .! The concept behind it would be something similar to a cluster I have setup at my place for web servers. . .It constitutes of 3 nodes which are load balanced using ha proxy on the basis of round robin. . .so to gain access to any of the node, one needs to enter the ip of just the load balancer node into the browser. . . in this case I will have a file system setup such that the memory of all the three nodes will be shared over the network and hence accessed by the users using ftp . . . any kind of input would be appreciated. . . is there any other way to achieve the same??!
