In one of our production environments Load balanced by a CSS 11503 ,one of the servers has higher CPU and Memory and can take more load than the other. So we need to direct more traffic to this more powerful server. I have been trying to test this scenario in the Test environment. I have configured the content rule with Weighted Round Robin as the Load Balancing Algorithm.
When a load test is performed, the service with lower weight has more hits than the Service with Higher weight. I had the same result when i changed the weight on the Content Rule or changed the weight on the Service. This behaviour was confirmed with the Show Summary command at the end of every load test run.
Has anyone excounterd this scenario previously ? If yes how could this be tweaked ? Thanks in advance!
can we see your config ?
This works for me in the lab.
What kind of load test do you use ? Does it simulate many clients or a single one ?
