Load Balancer configuration is stored in a XML-based file. To configure it for your system you need to plan before some network topology issues. As you can see in the following diagram, you will need two networks:

  • A public (maybe firewall-protected) network, recheable from Internet (your serversí public IP address). This IP now will be the IP for the load balancer. Also, the loadbalancer need to be connected to the private network, so it can connect to the server farm (private network).
  • A private network (non-reachable directly from Internet) where your servers live. Each server has a private IP address. These servers build the server farm

This is the basic network topology to manage a LoadBalancer. Also, you can use other topologies (e.g. A private subnetwork per cluster) but this is the cheapest (I think). In the following sections I will explain how to configure each element in detail
