Managing PacketShaper Load Balancer S-Series

The PacketShaper Load Balancer S-Series device can be automatically discovered by eG Enterprise. Therefore, administrators can either auto-discover the load balancer in their environment or manually add the load balancer.

To manage the load balancers that are automatically discovered, follow the steps below:

  1. Login to the eG admin interface.
  2. If the component is yet to be discovered, then, run discovery (Infrastructure -> Components -> Discovery).
  3. To manage an already discovered component, follow the menu sequence: Infrastructure -> Components -> Manage/Unmanage/Delete.
  4. Figure 1 and Figure 2 clearly illustrate the process of managing a PacketShaper Load Balancer S-Series device.
