Re: MWG like TMG Web Chain Proxy

Hi Mario,


not really sure if forwarding to another proxy would solve your issue. The feature we have in MWG is to send dedicated content to next hop proxy. But it wont decide to do so in case of overload. Additionally you could use Proxy HA for load balancing. Please check our Best Practice article if it suits your needs:


Understanding ProxyHA


Details about Next Hop module you will find in our Product Guide:


With Kind regards,

There will be a proxy HA in the data center the objective is each webgateway in branch office should be able to forward the request to the Data Center Proxy when experiencing slowness or as backup when theres ISP outage

Technically it sounds more as Loadbalancer functions I've seen by some customers not a proxy function. They pole external resourced and check the connectivity to. In case of slowness the Loadbalancer mark slow Proxy as down and reroute traffic.
