There are multiple tabs on the Manage load balancer wizard. We will describe all of them one by one.

VPS List - Here all the VM(s) will be listed which are under/behind this Load Balancer. To which the traffice will be redirected as per the Rules and algorithm selected.

Rules List - Here you will see the current list of Rules which are being applied for the VM(s) which are under the current Load Balancer. By default, one rule will be added once you add any VM under the load balancer.


Settings - This tab will provide you the option to add Rules and set algorithms for how the load balancer should manage the requests for all the VM(s) under this load balancer.


Load Balancer Method:

1. roundrobin - Round Robin selects servers in turns. This is the default algorithm.
2. leastconn - Select the server with the least number of connections. This is recommended for longer sessions. Servers in the same backend are also rotated in a round-robin fashion.
3. static-rr - Distributes each request sequentially around a pool of real servers as does Round-Robin, but does not allow configuration of server weight dynamically. However, because of the static nature of server weight, there is no limitation on the number of active servers in the back end.
4. first - Select the on first come first serve bases.

Load Balancer Rules

Load balancer rules will be based on two parts one will be for frontend (Load balancer) and the second will be for Backend (VM(s)).

Supported Source protocols are : HTTP, HTTPS, HTTP2, HTTP3, TCP

Supported Destination protocols are : HTTP, HTTPS, TCP
