Does anyone know if IOS SLB can function similar to Multinode Load Balancing (MNLB) in that the IOS router acts as a Services Manager which contacts the OS390 Worload Manager (WLM) who then reports back the best OS390 server for a particular connection.
Under MNLB, the Local Director performs the task as the Services Manager, but can a IOS SLB router perform this task?
IOS SLB cannot operate as MNLB Services Manager. If you have an LD, that may be your best option. You will need to stay on version 3.x of LD code, however as the feature was removed starting with version 4.x.
Steve, thank you for the reply. I have a large-scale OS390 WLM request as I'm told that this is the method for providing server load-balancing in a sysplex environment. I wonder why it is not supported in version 4.X. Do you happen to know the long term goal for OS390 load balancing support?
