Hello Balamurugan,

my understanding is that you are looking for OSI L4-L7 load balancers.

Cisco load balancers products include:

- service modules that can be installed on catalyst 6500 or 7600 chassis these include CSM and ACE (newer)

- stand alone products; ACE appliances and CSS 11000

Here are some links:

ACE module for C6500

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/interfaces_modules/services_modules/ace/vA2_3_0/configuration/getting/started/guide/ACE_GSG.html

ACE standalone appliance

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/app_ntwk_services/data_center_app_services/ace_appliances/vA3_2_2/configuration/quick/guide/overview.html

CSS11000 (also CSS11500 exists)

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/app_ntwk_services/data_center_app_services/css11000series/v6.10/configuration/basic/guide/bsccfggd.html

CSM module for C6500

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/interfaces_modules/services_modules/csm/4.1.x/4.1.2/configuration/guide/overview.html

I have direct experience with CSM and ACE modules inside C6500 switches.

I tried to find a comparison of these server load balancing products but I didn't find one.

The following document can be interesting

Hope to help
