I have several http and game servers on a network and currently use an Apache2 reverse proxy to divvy out traffic between domains and machines.
I am getting a significant amount more traffic to one machine in particular than others. I would like to know where to start with using my virtual hosts to direct excess traffic to a different machine.
Essentially when 192.168.1.5 is inaccessible or heavily loaded I'd like to send this traffic to 192.168.1.6 instead.
I've tried searching but obviously I'm not even using the right terminology. Sorry for being so new at this. I'm still learning, and I appreciate any tips or pointers.
