Configuring Load Balancing

You might want to run depot servers behind an Apache load balancer. One benefit of load balancing is to increase the availability of your repository. This section shows two examples of load balancing.

If your repositories are load balanced, the catalogs in all of the repositories should be exactly the same to avoid problems when the load balancer switches clients from one node to another. To ensure the catalogs are exactly the same, clone the repositories that participate in load balancing as described in Maintaining Multiple Identical Local Repositories.
