Load balancer with multiple AWEs

Straightforward question here I think....

Does SolarWinds support using a load balancer with multiple Additional Web Servers, and if so, what is the limit to the number of AWEs that can be attached to a single Orion instance?

Thanks.

  • not as straight forward as you might think...

    In simple fashion, yes, the app is ignorant of a LB in front.  I have 3 AWEs behind a F5 LB.

    The rub I haven't been able to work around is the authentication piece.

    i.e. when I get LB'd to srvA, I have to auth with that server.  when a request goes to srvB, I have to auth to srv B as well.

    The app doesn't have an awareness and I have not been able to get cookies to work either.  I even [though long ago] had a ticket open with F5 and had some help from them.

    Disclaimer - I'm no F5 guru and *hopefully* am wrong.  I think I've even posted on thwack but never found a solution.

    good luck and please update post if you find solution.
