Cisco load balancer cs11500 question

Cisco load balancer cs11500 question

Cisco load balancer cs11500 question

I have a situation where a user has 2 servers with a ip address of and respectively. He wants as primary server . He wants to give 90% weight on primary and 10% on secondary.

basically he wants to configure weight on this config . He wants to make sure that secondary will take over if primary fails

How do i do this in css 11500 . what are the commands ?

RE: Cisco load balancer cs11500 question

  if you are doing weights, both systems will be active processing traffic and the only difference is that server1 will have majority of the traffic. If the first server fails, all traffic will then go to server2. The "weight" you assign will allocate the number of requests per device.

ie: if you have a weight of "4", this would mean that ever 4 requests go to server1 and 1 request will go to server2. When using weights you will have to have the "balance" algorithm as "roundrobin" in your content rule.

service server1
  ip address
  weight 4

service server2
  ip address

content app
vip x.x.x.x
balance roundrobin

I think you need to use

balence weightedrr



RE: Cisco load balancer cs11500 question

You are correct, my mistake. You do need "weightedrr" as the balance option.
