Managing a Load Balancing Setup

Aug 31, 2016

An existing Load Balancing setup does not require a great deal of work to maintain as long as it is unchanged, but most do not remain unchanged for long. Increasing load requires new load-balanced servers and eventually new NetScaler appliances, which must be configured and added to the existing setup. Old servers wear out and need to be replaced, requiring removal of some servers and addition of others. Upgrades to your networking equipment or changes to topology may also require modifications to your load balancing setup. Therefore, you will need to perform operations on server objects, services, and virtual servers. The Visualizer can display your configuration graphically, and you can perform operations on the entities in the display. You can also take advantage of a number of other features that facilitate management of the traffic through your load balancing setup.
