Rackspace automatically creates networks and IP addresses for your virtual machines and network connections for your load balancers. The virtual machines to be load balanced can be in the same or different virtual appliances.
The name of the load balancer. Can be changed when editing the load balancer
The algorithms supported by Rackspace are:
The addresses to assign to the load balancer, which can be
In RackSpace, the first address in a virtual datacenter must be automatically created. Later, an existing address may be used to create more load balancers for connections to different ports
To load predefined values, select one of the most common protocols. The complete list can be configured in the client-config-custom.json file. See Configure Abiquo UI
The incoming protocol to the load balancer. The complete list can be configured in the client-config-custom.json file. See Configure Abiquo UI
The incoming port to the load balancer
The outgoing protocol from the load balancer
The outgoing port from the load balancer
|SSL Cerftificate||Select an existing certificate or click Add a new certificate|
|Add||Click Add to save a routing rule for the load balancer|
To load predefined values, select one of the most common protocols.
Name of the health check
The protocol with which the health check will be performed. Rackspace supports HTTP, HTTPS and CONNECT. The health check protocols HTTP and HTTPS can only be used with routing rules for the same protocol.
The port to which the health check will be performed.
|Path||The server path to ping. Required by Rackspace for health monitors using HTTP and HTTPS protocols|
|Interval (sec)||The interval in seconds between health checks|
|Timeout (sec)||The timeout in seconds after which an attempted health check will be considered unsuccessful|
|Attempts||The number of attempts before the health check will be considered unsuccessful|
|Add||Add the current health check to the load balancer|
To attach virtual machines to your load balancer, drag and drop them from the Available Nodes list into the Attached Nodes list. You can also attach virtual machines by selecting load balancers when configuring the virtual machine.
Click Save to create your load balancer.
After your load balancer is created, the IP address created for it is available to other load balancers.
