GSS load balancing ? Only one GSS seems to answer

Hi,

We have configured two GSSs but only one of them seems to respond to DNS requests, I see this via the answer hit counts.

The box that answers is NOT the GSSM Primary. I was under the impression that both boxes could/would respond or is this not true.

Any facts would be appreciated. Cheers.

Mike

Re: GSS load balancing ? Only one GSS seems to answer

The RoundRobin balancing will not be a perfect distribution if you use the AP-KAL mechanism for your keepalive. This is because when the load on the answers changes, the "order" is sorted, and the top of the sorted list is used for the next answer even though the sorted order is of no interest in a roundrobin balance.To get a perfect roundrobin balance, use a different keepalive.
