Process of Configuring Load Balancing for Siebel Business Applications
This topic describes configuring load balancing for Siebel Business Applications. Both Siebel native load balancing and third-party load balancing are supported. You perform this task before configuring the Siebel Web Server Extension (SWSE).
NOTE: This topic describes the initial configuration of load balancing. For more information about planning and managing load balancing for your deployment, see Planning Siebel Server Load Balancing, Siebel Deployment Planning Guide, and Siebel System Administration Guide. For information about implementing third-party load balancing, see 477835.1 (Article ID) on My Oracle Support. This document was previously published as Siebel Technical Note 540.
To configure load balancing, perform the following tasks:
- Generating the Load Balancing Configuration File (lbconfig.txt)
- Setting Up a Third-Party HTTP Load Balancer
- Setting the Load Balancer Connection Timeout Interval
- Monitoring Servers with Siebel Native Load Balancer or Third-Party HTTP Load Balancers
