Load balancer


I used both pound and nginx as load balancers. With pound I had issues with SSL websites so I moved to nginx. With nginx I have the problem that it does not load balance equally between the backend servers.

I remember hearing something about another load balancing web server but I forgot its name.

Does anyone know other alternatives to nginx/pound?

Please help

Depending on what you're running on the back end Apache has multiple plugins for BE load balancing, for example, Glassfish/WebLogic.
