Load balancing SMPP in ACE module

Unanswered Question
Dec 15th, 2009


We have a new requirement to load balance 2 servers with SMPP protocol  on ACE module.  The Code which is is running is A21(6a). Can any one suggest whether this protocol is supported for load balancing.

I have this problem too.

Hello Shibi,

This protocol can be load balanced by the ace at the TCP layer 4 level. There is no support for the underlying protocol however, so the ace cannot do any layer 7 load balancing decisions for this this protocol.
