Deployment Server and Load Balancer?

Path Finder

Can you put a deployment server behind a load balancer if the deployment-apps directory is on an NFS share and serverclass.conf is synchronised by another deployment server?
Sounds like a good way to reduce load and increase availability without costs to me.

Well actually you could symlink serverclass.conf to the NFS share too...

Quoting Jonathon Cervelli "Absolutely". In a widely distributed installation you can also achieve quicker deployments by placing accelerators locally. This way the bundles will only go via the wan once.

tried this.. nope. not unless you want to re-download apps over and over again as your deployment-client his different instances of deployment server over time.

Newer versions of Splunk offers the ability to have same checksum over multiple servers, so they won't reload every time they connect to new server.

Check out serverclass.conf

crossServerChecksum = true|false
* Ensures that each app will have the same checksum across different deployment
servers.
* Useful if you have multiple deployment servers behind a load-balancer.
* Defaults to false.
