NSX – Optimize a server pool to manage and share backend servers

You can add a server pool to manage and share backend servers flexibly and efficiently. A pool manages load balancer distribution methods and has a service monitor attached to it for health check parameters.

Round-Robin: Pretty simple to understand, it just keeps flip-flopping equally between all the servers in the pool.

Least Conn: The server with the least connections will be sent the next client request.

IP-Hash: Selects a server-based on a hash of an IP address and a weighting.

HTTP HEADER: HTTP Header name is looked up. Server host name can be determined.

URL: Selects a server by basically a hash of the URL and a weighting.

URI: Left part of the URL is hashed and weighted.
