Configuring a GSLB Service

Aug 31, 2016
A GSLB service is a representation of a load balancing or content switching virtual server. A local GSLB service represents a local load balancing or content switching virtual server. A remote GSLB service represents a load balancing or content switching virtual server configured at one of the other sites in the GSLB setup. At each site in the GSLB setup, you can create one local GSLB service and any number of remote GSLB services.

Creating GSLB Services

To create a GSLB service by using the command line interface

At the command prompt, type the following commands to create a GSLB service and verify the configuration:

  • add gslb service <serviceName> <serverName | IP> <serviceType> <port>-siteName <string>
  • show gslb service <serviceName>

Example

add gslb service Service-GSLB-1 10.14.39.14 HTTP 80 –siteName Site-GSLB-East-Coast 
show gslb service Service-GSLB-1

To modify or remove a GSLB service by using the command line interface

  • To modify a GSLB service, use the set gslb service <serviceName> command. For this command, specify the name of the GSLB service whose configuration you want to modify. You can change the existing values of the parameters either specified by you or set by default. You can change the value of more than one parameter in the same command. Refer to the add gslb service command for details about the parameters. Example
    > set gslb service SKP_GSLB_NOTCNAME_SVC2 -maxBandWidth 25 -maxClient 8 
    Done 
    > sh gslb service SKP_GSLB_NOTCNAME_SVC2 
    SKP_GSLB_NOTCNAME_SVC2 (21.211.21.21: 80)- HTTP 
    ... 
    Max Conn: 8  Max Bandwidth: 25 kbits
  • To reset a parameter to its default value, you can use the unset gslb service <serviceName> command and the parameters to be unset. Example
    > unset gslb service SKP_GSLB_NOTCNAME_SVC2 maxBandWidth 
    Done 
    > sh gslb service SKP_GSLB_NOTCNAME_SVC2 
    SKP_GSLB_NOTCNAME_SVC2 (21.211.21.21: 80)- HTTP 
    ... 
    Max Conn: 8  Max Bandwidth: 0 kbits
  • To remove a GSLB service, use the rm gslb service <serviceName> command.

To create a GSLB service by using the configuration utility

  1. Navigate to Traffic Management > GSLB > Services.
  2. Add a new GSLB service, or select an existing service and edit its settings.
