I have 2 questions, kindly help.
1) first, is there any ports for APM/BSM load balancer?
2) secondly, any software i can use for load balancing? if i am not using network load balancer or a physical load balancer.
Re: load balancer ports
Hello @MikeAlpha ,
1) BSM/APM primarily works on 80\443 for user access and 383 for events. In the Load balancer configuration, you can choose the inbound ports (which you will share with the world to access the BSM/APM) say 'x' port for user access and 'y' port for events and, map them to outbound ports ( towards BSM/APM) 80\443 for user access and 383 for events. Though I will recommend you to use same inbound ports for Load balancer as that of outbound ports unless you have a specific concern.
2) OMi Supports both Hardware and virtual appliance-based load balancers.
"OBM supports hardware and virtual appliance-based load balancers. A hardware load balancer solution is preferred for performance reasons. All load balancers must be able to configure sticky session for users and being able to configure URL based health monitors". Click here.
