WebSphere Edge Components Review

Load Balancer

Load Balancer (formerly known as Network Dispatcher) is the load-balancing piece of the Edge Components. It has the capability to do everything covered in our earlier generic load-balancing discussion, as well as a number of enhancements. For example, you can configure Advisors on the backend servers that report system metrics, such as memory and CPU utilization, and application information, such as whether an application server or data source is unavailable, to be used in load-balancing decisions. Load balancing can also be done by factoring in external data, such as the time of day, client IP address and/or port, rate of incoming connections, and total active connections.
