Farms Info

For every type of Load Balancing Service this section summarizes the number of total, available or down farms services.

As ZEVENET is able to work at different layers and with very different methods, the farms profiles available are:

LSLB (Local Service Load Balancing). This kind of farm is able to serve virtual services and applications at layer 4 (through L4xNAT profile) and at layer 7 (through HTTP profile). The incoming connections will be managed and shared to the backends via a big list of protocols available: TCP/UDP/SCTP/HTTP/HTTPS. More info
DSLB (Datalink Service Load Balancing). This kind of farm allows to load balance uplinks through layer 3 using dynamic load balancing routing. More info

For each of the farms profiles the widget shows the differents possible status:

Up. The farm is running normally
Problem. When the farm is up but at least one of the backends is not reachable or presents a problem.
Critical. When the farm is up but none of the backends are reachable. They can be down or in maintenance mode.
Down. The farm is totally stopped


Next step, manage farms.
