Event Details

Load Balancing with Apache

At this month's meeting, Bradley Holt will discuss configuring load balancing using the Apache HTTP Server. Load balancing is a technique that can distribute work across multiple server nodes—here we will discuss load balancing HTTP (i.e. web) traffic. There are many software and hardware load balancing options available including HAProxy, Varnish, Pound, Perlbal, Squid, nginx, and Linux-HA (High-Availability Linux) on Linux Standard Base (LSB). However, many web developers are already familiar with Apache as a web server and it is relatively easy to also configure Apache as a load balancer.

We'll discuss related concepts such as shared nothing architecture. We'll also take a look at some basic load balancing scenarios and features including sticky sessions and proxying requests based on HTTP method. Distributed load testing with Tsung will be briefly discussed as well.

Meetings are open to the public via RSVP. You will have the chance to network and connect with fellow PHP developers.
