Monitoring JetNEXUS Load Balancer
To ensure continuous operation and good health of the JetNEXUS Load Balancer and its core components, eG Enterprise provides a specialized JetNEXUS Load Balancer model (see Figure 1).
Every layer of Figure 1 is mapped to a variety of tests which connect to the SNMP MIB of the target load balancer to collect critical statistics pertaining to its performance. The metrics reported by these tests enable administrators to answer the following questions:
- Is CPU/memory/disk on the target load balancer over-utilized?
Was the throughput of the target load balancer optimal while processing data/compressed data?
- How well the real server is processing client traffic? Which server is handling the maximum traffic?
- How well the virtual server is processing client traffic? Which virtual server is handling the maximum traffic?
