Directing Requests According to Priority

Nov 11, 2013

The NetScaler appliance supports prioritization of client requests with its priority queuing feature. This feature allows you to designate certain requests, such as those from important clients, as priority requests and sends them to the “front of the line,” so that the appliance responds to them first. This allows you to provide uninterrupted service to those clients through demand surges or DDoS attacks on your web site.

To configure priority queuing on a virtual server by using the command line interface

At the command prompt, type:

set lb vserver <name> -pq <Value>

Example

set lb vserver Vserver-LB-1 -pq yes

To configure priority queuing on a virtual server by using the configuration utility

  1. Navigate to Traffic Management > Load Balancing > Virtual Servers, and open the virtual server.
  2. In Advanced Settings, click Traffic Settings, and select Priority Queuing.
Note: You must configure priority queuing globally for it to function correctly.
