Suppose I want to add more servers to my backends realtime, what is the standard way to get my http server to update its internal rpc data structure so it load balances on the new backends.

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.
This really depends on the server you're using as a load balancer. Nginx supports the HUP signal to reload its configuration file, allowing you to add or remove backends. Cherokee does load balancing and has a web GUI for updating configuration. HA Proxy supports updating configuration without having to shutdown and restart.
What server are you using?
