Is it possible to do loadbalancing based on url instead of IP address. To explain clearly, when a client hits a VIP, it should be loadbalanced between two URLs.

Yes, ACE support URL loadbalancing. Here is a sample L7 URL match from the config guide.

host1/Admin(config)# class-map type http loadbalance L7SLBCLASS

host1/Admin(config-cmap-http-lb)# 10 match http url /whatsnew/latest.*

Regular expressions are supported in the match expression. Refer to the Cisco Application Control Engine Module Server Load-Balancing Configuration Guide for indepth example and configuration, http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/interfaces_modules/services_modules/ace/v3.00_A1/configuration/slb/guide/classlb.html

  • Cisco Employee,

could you clarify ???

You don't want to loadbalance between real server ip address ? But instead redirect the client to 2 urls ??

This is possible.

If you want to use different servers based on the url, this is also possible and you got an example in the first response you got.
