Load Balancing Linux servers with CSS 11050 series

We would like to load balance Linux FTP and Web servers with a CSS 11050 series device. Does the content switch use SNMP to load balance the servers? If so, which MIBs need to be loaded on the servers?

Since there has been no response to your post, it appears to be either too complex or too rare an issue for other forum members to assist you. If you don't get a suitable response to your post, you may wish to review our resources at the online Technical Assistance Center (http://www.cisco.com/tac) or speak with a TAC engineer. You can open a TAC case online at http://www.cisco.com/tac/caseopen

If anyone else in the forum has some advice, please reply to this thread.

Thank you for posting.

Re: Load Balancing Linux servers with CSS 11050 series

I dont believe that the CSS supports any SNMP load balancing mechanism.

There is basically two factors involved in load balancing. One: the state of the servers which can be done via a range of mechanisms including ping, TCP connection, Application request, etc. Two: the way a server is chosen when a request comes in including round-robin, least connections, ACA etc.

Re: Load Balancing Linux servers with CSS 11050 series

The CSS does not need or use SNMP to load balance servers. The default load balancing algorithm for the CSS is roundrobin. However, the CSS can be configured to load balance

based on other algorithms such as leastconnections, weighted roundrobin, ACA, srcip.

Here is a sample configuration that might help:
