We have a performance test environment that we built to run load testing on. We have a presentation tier and an application tier each made up of 4 servers, with a sql server feeding these.
We are using Windows Load Balancing on Windows 2003 Server (Enterprise).
The issue I have is that the most of the time, during a test, about 80% or more (sometimes 100%) of the work is done by only one of the servers in the cluster.
Cluster operating mode:
- List item
- The host Port rules are:
- Protocols: TCP
- Filtering mode: Multiple host
- Affinity: None
- Load weight: equal.
What am I doing wrong?
Update: 16/09/2010 Thanks for the info Bart Silverstrim. I think what I am doing wrong is the fact that in our performance test environment, for the specific test that I am running, I only have a single client.
Is there any way that I could set up Windows Load Balancing on Windows Server 2003 to still balance the load while using only a single client? Basically, I just need it to round-robin.
