  • What is my server load ? Load Balancing ?

    Server Load - you hear the term used often and maybe your not quite sure what it is and what effect it has.....

    Server load refers to the amount of processes that are running on the server at a given time. The higher the rate the slower the server will be able to handle incoming requests. In general server load will depend upon several factors. RAM, and CPU speed. A server load for a Xeon processor would be different from a load on a Pentium 3 server.

    Many times users/clients assume that when the server load goes into red in CPanel that their website is not loading correctly or is down. This is not the case. The server load will often spike up into the high range (generally in the double digits) but return to normal range within a few minutes.

    The CPANEL setting does not take into account the RAM or CPU Speed, the number is fixed at 4.00.

    In general a server load in the double digits would be considered high if it was like that for a prolonged period of time.

    For a dual xeon processor with 2GB ram a load of 2.00 would be the norm.

    Unfortunately, to many people use the load as a determination of quality of service. This isn't the most accurate measure and is often hard to determine the effect it will have on your website.

    Also.... have you ever wondered what is load balancing ?

    When a website becomes highly popular a single server can become overloaded and overworked quickly. This is why many providers use clustering, creating server farms. For increased scalability more servers are added to distrubute and split the load among many servers. This is refered to as a "server cluster". The load that distributed among these servers is called "load balancing". This technique has grown in popularity even for web-hosts who are able to increase uptime by elminating periods of downtime from a server that was overloaded/rebooted.

    Modern servers are required to make multiple number of connections. It can be thousands if not in hundreds. Most of the big companies who serve number of users have many number of servers. It will be a great disaster to avoid load balancing and run the server (It may explode).

    Many big companies use server load balancing for serving their users. Inside a server there resides a program called “loadBalancer”this program is just like police it knows the load on every server and routes the request to a less congested server.

    Many types of algorithms are used in load balancing:

    Round Robin
    Least Connections:
    IP Hash

          Server Load Balancing (SLB) is a technology that distributes high traffic sites among several servers using a network-based hardware or software-defined.

            Load balancing is defined as the methodical and efficient distribution of network or application traffic across multiple servers in a server farm. Each load balancer sits between client devices and backend servers, receiving and then distributing incoming requests to any available server capable of fulfilling them.

              Server Load Balancing (SLB) is a technology that distributes high traffic sites among several servers using a network-based hardware or software-defined appliance. And when load balancing across multiple geo locations, the intelligent distribution of traffic is referred to as global server load balancing (GSLB). The servers can be on premises in a company’s own data centers, or hosted in a private cloud or the public cloud. Server load balancers intercepts traffic for a website and reroutes that traffic to servers.

                Load communicates the number of cycles are holding up in the line to get to the PC processor. This is determined for a specific timeframe, and the more modest the number the better. We consider a heap esteem under 10 to be satisfactory.

                Load Balancing is characterized as the systematic and productive dissemination of organization or application traffic across numerous workers in a worker ranch. Each heap balancer sits between customer gadgets and backend workers, getting and afterward conveying approaching solicitations to any accessible worker equipped for satisfying them.
