We have the following IP addresses (for example):
Each hosts the same website, but on a different server. We want to do some really simple load balancing by having web users visit a different IP address on each request. Our application fully supports this, so there's no technical issues with authentication, etc.
I think I've got this working, but I'm not sure. If I use nslookup to query the zone, then the IPs alternate in round-robin fashion, which is cool.
Addresses: 188.8.131.52 184.108.40.206
Addresses: 220.127.116.11 18.104.22.168
I have observed that if the http server is not available on the 1st IP, the web browser will just use the 2nd IP which is also pretty cool.
However, this seems to be really difficult to test, since once a browser has an IP (Chrome for instance), it'll stick with it. Maybe this is a good thing? So, just based on how I've explained this, does that sound like it'd work as a load balancer with redundancy?
