Subject [users@httpd] Question about mod_proxy_balancer
Date Mon, 15 Jul 2013 20:30:36 GMT
ello List,
The Barracuda load balancer has feature which enables it to recover a
broken web connection. Let me explain the scenario; suppose that there
exist two web servers behind the Barracuda load balancer and the user is
downloading a file from one of the back-end web servers. Now, suppose that
the active web server goes down, the Barracuda load balancer is capable of
continuing the download from where it was broken using the other web
server. Is it possible to achieve such a behavior using mod_proxy_balancer?
Are there exist any open source alternatives which can provide the same
capability? If not, is anybody aware of any roadmaps to achieve the same
functionality using open source tools? Considering mod_proxy_balancer, what
are the required steps to follow in order to add such a functionality?
Thanks in advance.

Warm Regards,
Ali Majdzadeh Kohbanani
