How Many Load Balancers Can I Have?


By default, you can have a maximum of 10 load balancers.

If you need more load balancers, you can apply for a higher quota, but the upper limit is 255.

Methods used to implement virtual load balancing
Currently, virtual and physical SVN load balancing can be implemented. vLB is used to balance the load of multiple WIs. Physical LB balances the load of WIs to prevent a large number of users from accessing the same WI.

Methods used to deploy load balancers and firewalls
Load balancers and firewalls can be attached to the core switches directly or indirectly. Indirect attachment is recommended. (1) If load balancers and firewalls are attached directly to the core switches, all traffic will pass through them even if unnecessary. This wastes interface bandwidth, increases the risk of network faults, and makes subsequent expansion inconvenient. The advantage is that network speed will be high. (2) If load balancers and firewalls are attached indirectly to the core switches, only part of the traffic will be transmitted to the corresponding load balancers and firewalls after you configure routing policies or dynamic routing instances on the core switches. This reduces the traffic and the risk of network faults, and makes subsequent expansion and optimization more convenient. The disadvantage is that the network will be slower.

How to configure load balancing on an AC
Load balancing can evenly distribute AP traffic loads to ensure high bandwidth for each STA. The load balancing function applies to wireless networks with high user densities to ensure proper access of STAs. Depending on whether a load balancing group needs to be manually created, load balancing is classified into static and dynamic load balancing.
