Load balancing

Aug 10, 2012 at 10:57 AM


Can multiple installs of Phoenix be used together in a load balanced environment and if so what is the recommended setup?

I wrote a wiki just for that. You can read about it here:

In the future, I would be providing a tool to make setting up the ESB in a load balanced environment easier.

So would you set up the two servers with a single ip using network load balancing?

I could setup NLB since the routers/gateways component are using TCP connection through ZeroMQ. You don't have to use NLB if you follow the instruction to setup the ESBs.

I just need clarification about NLB and the source code. Am I correct in saying, the code on CodePlex does NOT support NLB? I have to use the Trial or Commercial version?

Your wiki states:

"Note: This will only work for trial and commercial licensed installation"

Thanks for any response.

That is correct. There are future plans to have a UI dashboard(Currently been developed) and utility to make it easier to setup load balancing across multiple ESB components without using the manual steps.
