    Loadbalancing in V8

    Hi all,

    I'm trying to set up loadbalancing in V8.

    We folowed this guide and the site throws no errors. I'm left with a few questions:

    1. Is it still nescesairy to set a UmbracoApplicationUrl?
    2. What is the simplest way to test if Loadbalancing works? (What should go wrong if not setup correctly?)
    3. Do we need to prevent access to Umbraco on the slaves?

    Thanks for the help!

    Does anyone have questions for the answers above?

    I am trying to understand how this works in Umbraco. What will happen if the master is down for maintenance. Will the slave's keep on running?

    Hi Frans,

    1. I have no idea :)

    2. We always use three url's.

    a) The root domain; this domain links to the loadbalancer and the loadbalancer "decides" to which server it goes

    b) Two domains for the specific loadbalance instances called and If I go to I know for sure this shows the website on that server.

    So to test this: Change some content, publish it. Check whether it's updated on www, lb01 and lb02. If that works than you should be happy :)

    Make sure btw that lb01 and are not indexed by Google (!)

    c) Yes. We have a redirect rule that always redirects you to the correct server (master)

    Hope this shines some lights on your issues!

    Regards, Jeffrey
