Multi-Server, how dose it function?

Asked by Phillip Beckford on 2010-11-22

I am working to work out the reasons why a user would want to use Multi-Server, dose the this enable hosted file over both servers?

what would be good is if the this function dose two things:
1. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Channel_bonding
2. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Network_Load_Balancing

i have read on a few forums that it is possible to configure a server internally to do both of these things.

Almost all types of load balancing, or "multi-server" concepts, are considered at its level/layer.

As I understand, Network Load Balancing is done in network layer.
Channel bonding is done in or lower of network layer, maybe layer 2 (data link).

These all divide the traffic, or makes a higher bandwidth available to user.

However, they do not define, and do not handle how the requests are handled, when they are arrived at a server.
Which content is displayed ? which html is shown.. which mysql is run.. all these depends on the server configuration.
if we would just use a "hard drive" which serves some static content, then, a network load balancer would do all the job.
But we have some dynamic content too, to handle..

So, our job (ehcp's mission regarding multiserver) comes at this point. new ehcp configures all servers so that, they all respond to requests that arrive them. Please look at documentation that I sent you. If you dont have that, I will send again. That doc describes what ehcp does in multi-server operations.

There are many things to consider in multi server environments, and we need to investigate more and more, to make things clear and more clever.

see you.
