Load balancing through squid proxy server


Hi i m niru and currently working on load balancing server.I want to balance the incoming request equally between multiple squid server based on bandwidth consumption on those server .My problem is as...suppose a request come to a squid server then it will contact the load balancing server to find which other severs are loaded and on the basis of this information it will redirect the incoming request ...can anyone help please...


Ya here i explain the detail of my problem domain.........

In my network there is squid proxy server SQ1,SQ2,SQ3 and load balancer LB1 all having same class IP address (that is B class ip address).The load balancer keep the information of bandwidth consumption at the three server (by the help of tcpdump ).Now there is incoming request come to the proxy server SQ1 now its contact the LB1 and predict which Proxy server is least loaded(let us suppose it will SQ3) after that it will redirect the request to server SQ3.During this process user thought that his request provided by SQ1 but in actually request provided by SQ3 .

So my problem is how the SQ1 (on the basis of bandwidth consumption )passed the incoming request to the SQ3.Can any one help me please........

Can you explain a bit more about this architecture? you're after some sort of off line "director" server to control this? and this is based on the bandwidth through the servers? are these servers in the same geographical place? on the same internet pipe?
