Trying to use litespeed load balancer for balancing lsapi
I was evaluating various combinations of litespeed server and as it seems our setup is going to be more than one node/machine/server setup, using litespeed+rubylsapi is not a good idea, because we won't be able to cluster across machines.
I did some benchmarking and found, litespeed+lsapi is sligtly faster than mongrel+nginx. However more interesting comibation that appears is to use Litespeed load balancer to balance rails lsapi instances. Litespeed balancer doesn't perform all that good with web server load balancing, but I simply couldn't make lsapi load balancing work.
basically what I did was, installed litespeed webserver and created rails context and two listeners listening to same vhost on same port, but different IP address.
Now in Litespeed load balancer configuration, I tried creating a LSAPI cluster and pass those IP/Ports as backend server address, but I am constantly getting a 503 errros.
Application is a simple hello world thing, and I can hit the app directly very much.
Also I was wondering, if anyone has tried using Litespeed load balancer with mongrels and if it performs better than nginx?
I know that Litespeed load balancer is new, but it would be really nice to have capability of load balancing various ruby-lsapi across various nodes.
