SLB Server Pool

The SLB function uses the load balancing algorithm to distribute the traffic and this utilizes the resources of the intranet servers. You can use the following methods to balance the server load:

  • Distribute the traffic to the specified port of each intranet server. This is applicable to the scenario that different intranet servers provide the same service via specified port at the same time.
  • Distribute the traffic to different ports of an intranet server. This is applicable to the scenario that an intranet server provides the same service by running the same process at different ports.
  • Combine the above two methods.
