Web Gateway HA and 10GBit throughput

Hello everybody,

has anyone experience or info when using Webgateway HA-Cluster and a througput more than 1GBit is needed?

Szenario:

- 8xMWG hardware appliance

- Appliances are configured using HA-Cluster on MWG.

- Customer rises the internet connection to 4GBit.

Any idea or info whats the best way to handle this?

Cheers

Re: Web Gateway HA and 10GBit throughput

Possibly not the answer you are looking for but we also have 8 appliances, 4 interfaces bonded on each server and fronted by a separate load balancer (loadbalancer.org using LVS layer 4 traffic routing). Peak production performance we have seen so far on this is ~7Gbit.

The question that you are asking is one of the reasons I did not go down the HA-Cluster route.

Regards,

Tris

Hi ​,

thanks for the reply, i also thought about how this might can be handled with Bonding.

Just a question, have you tested active-active bonding?

Hi Troja,

Yes, we are using 802.3ad bonding and then have 802.1q trunks on top of that. With our traffic distribution, I see the links have a decent distribution of traffic.

This is not the best example as we are education focusted and most of the users are away, but this does show each link is busy.

[root@sch-mwg-01 access.log]# dstat -n -N eth0,eth1,eth2,eth3,bond0,bond0.602,bond0.26

--net/eth0----net/eth1----net/eth2----net/eth3---net/bond0--net/bond0.6-net/bond0.2
