Environment: 5 apache instances (balancerX) which distribute the traffic among 3 application servers (serverX).
With mod_balancer configuration by request with same loadfactor, server1 has a huge load while the other ones are having less load, that's why the balancer configuration is applied in the same way to all the servers no matter the real load of them, so always the first connection to balancer1,2,3,4 or 5 is redirected to server1. Since users are assigned the balancers randomly due to a HW balancer (that unfortunately can't be managed), I can't control that the 3 servers are receiving the same amount of connections.
How can I configure it to have the same load on server1,2 and 3?
