Description

Load Balancing starts with the basics of how to configure an HTTP load balancer in NGINX. You then explore how to set up TCP and UDP load balancers. You'll look at available load balancing methods: round robin, Hash, IP_Hash, Least Time, Least Connections, Random. You'll use server weight to manage traffic distribution on your load balancer. Finally, you'll use the max_conns and queue directives to manage how your load balancer responds to spikes in traffic. This module has hands-on labs.
