How to Do Multiple Unicast Server Load Balancing

Q171610



The information in this article applies to:


  • Microsoft NetShow version 2.0





SUMMARY

This article discusses how you can do multiple Unicast server load balancing.



MORE INFORMATION

In High volume situations, you should separate servers, and each server should run a separate network connection. Then the servers' IP addresses can be placed in a DNS table resolving to the same name. As a result, you would get round-robin load distribution managed by the DNS servers.

The above suggestion is the easiest and most reliable way to service a large volume of connections. However, you can use scripting to do load balancing. A script (for example, an Active Server Page) could be used to cycle through a list of servers.
