Load Balancing

  1. TCP Proxy Load Balancing support he following ports: 25, 43, 110, 143, 195, 443, 465, 587, 700, 993, 995, 1024-65535

    TCP Proxy Load Balancing advantages:

    Intelligent routing — the load balancer can route requests to backend locations where there is capacity. In contrast, an L3/L4 load balancer must route to regional backends without paying attention to capacity. Use of smarter routing allows provisioning at N+1 or N+2 instead of x*N.
    Security patching — If vulnerabilities arise in the TCP stack, we will apply patches at the load balancer automatically in order to keep your instances safe.
    TCP Proxy Load Balancing supports the following ports: 25, 43, 110, 143, 195, 443, 465, 587, 700, 993, 995, 1883, 5222

  2. Load balancer "URL Map" does not support A/B testing via %traffic with sticky path selection.

    I will have to install NGINX in front of the google load balancer, which is kinda redundant; however, it seems required as the current load balancer is unable to split traffic by either custom rules or by sticky path selection.

    Specifically I'm looking for is a way to introduce a "trial" swap of only page "X" (defined by UrlMap) that would direct 10% of the traffic to a different server/ip/container cluster while recording this choice as a cookie for consistency. This would allow us to do some basic live testing and a/b testing without impacting all consumers.

    This is an interesting suggestion – thanks. Passed along to the networking team.

  3. We need load balancer log....

    If the detail access log from load balancer can be read, will better!
