When providing the same service on multiple database servers, the load can be automatically balanced between systems using server pools and w3Monitor. This is possible because:
connections from multiple database servers can be assigned to the same server pool on one or more Web servers.
FCService assigns Web request entries in a server pool in the same order in which the connection between the Web server and the database server was established.
w3Monitor creates and destroys connections as needed.
For more information, see the Automatic Load Balancing topic in the Administering Server Pools section of the FlashCONNECT Administrator’s Guide.
