Topic: SOLVED? Load Balancer
What load balancer are people currently using? mod_proxy_balancer for apache is quite poor for any busy application, does anyone have any configuration tips or perhaps are using a different solution that allows more requests per second. Do you have a host that allows Hardware load balancing on plans, I only know of Joyent that offers hardware load balancing, and only on their plans $100/month up. Anyone got anything interesting?
EDIT: After some digging I have found that some people have nginx proxying and capable of 8k-10k requests/sec, I don't know how accurate this is but it is quite a step up from 150 reqs/sec available to mod_proxy_balancer so I'd say I'll head this way with the project I have in development.
