Managing Coyote Load Balancer

eG Enterprise is capable of automatically discovering the Coyote Load Balancer, and also allows you to manually add the component for monitoring. To manage an Coyote Load Balancer, do the following:

  1. Log into the eG administrative interface.

  2. If the Coyote Load Balancer is already discovered, then directly proceed towards managing it using the COMPONENTS – MANAGE/UNMANAGE page.

  3. However, if it is yet to be discovered, then run discovery (Infrastructure -> Components -> Discover) to get it discovered or follow the Components -> Add/Modify menu sequence in the Infrastructure tile of the Admin menu to manually add the component using the Components page. Remember that components manually added are managed automatically.

  4. In the COMPONENT page that appears next (see Figure 1), select Coyote Load Balancer as the Component type. Then, click the Add New Component button.

  5. Specify the Host IP/Name and the Nick name of the Coyote Load Balancer as shown in Figure 1, and click the Add button to register the changes.

  6. Once the Coyote Load Balancer is added successfully, you will be again redirected to the Components page (see Figure 2). Using the options provided in the Components page, you can modify, unmanage or delete the newly added component. In addition, you can also configure the tests.

  7. Click on any test in the list of unconfigured tests (see Figure 3). For instance, click on the Cluster HTTP Details test to configure it.

  8. In the page that appears, specify the parameters as shown in Figure 4 and click the Update button to configure the test.

  9. Once all the tests are configured, switch to the Monitor tab to view the performance metrics reported by the tests.
