The DX Cluster Layer
A Web Cluster is a set of web servers to be accelerated. The DX appliance listens for incoming web traffic to a specific Virtual IP address and port, and distributes it over the target hosts (web servers) in the cluster. Typically, all the web servers in a particular cluster serve identical content; that is, each cluster usually represents a distinct website or property.
The eG agent, by executing the tests associated with the DX Cluster layer (see Figure 1), reports critical statistics pertaining to each of the web clusters managed by the DX device.
