Configure a Load Balancer for a Service Instance

After creating an Oracle Java Cloud Service instance with a load balancer, or after adding a load balancer to an existing service instance, you can modify the load balancer configuration to meet your requirements.

Configure Oracle Traffic Director

For a service instance that has a user-managed load balancer, use the Load Balancer Console to access Oracle Traffic Director (OTD).

If your service instance does not have a load balancer, see Add a Load Balancer to a Service Instance.

Note:

Prior to modifying the default load balancer configuration, read the administration best practices for Oracle Traffic Director in Administration Best Practices.
  1. Access the Oracle Java Cloud Service console.
  2. Click Manage this instance Menu icon for the desired service instance and select Open Load Balancer Console.
    (Optional) Enter the result of the step here.
  3. Log in to Oracle Traffic Director Administration Console using the credentials that you defined when provisioning your Oracle Java Cloud Service instance.
  4. For service instances running Oracle Traffic Director 12c refer to these topics in Administering Oracle Traffic Director:
    For service instances running Oracle Traffic Director 11g refer to these topics in Oracle Traffic Director Administrator’s Guide:

Configure an Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Load Balancing Instance

You can't update the configuration of an Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Load Balancing instance that was provisioned automatically during the creation of an Oracle Java Cloud Service instance. But if you created and configured an Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Load Balancing instance manually, then you can update its configuration at any time.

See Managing a Load Balancer in the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure documentation.

Configure an Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Load Balancing Classic Instance

Configure the load balancer for a service instance that was created in an Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Classic region and with an Oracle-managed load balancer.

See Viewing and Monitoring Your Load Balancers in Using Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Load Balancing Classic.
