there is data acquisition Server and few clients PCs connect to Server, each network be separated with two Hub

0

1. there is a centralized "Server" that collects data from few gauges system with TCP/IP ( for example, we're using network as 192.168.10.xxx)

 

2. there are few clients PCs for connecting "Server' and they could monitor the data which collect from gauge system on online, real-time( using 172.168.10.xxx)

 

thus, there are two networks exist, first is collecting data from gauges, another is for clients PC with each hub, so when "Server" PC has some problem, which means, In case of an error the Primary Server must be disconnected automatically from the network and the Backup Server takes over the function with the same settings. I got some infromation of yours from our collage in Germany, but I couldn't understand what i can do with your product exactly, so in my case, which product you could recommend to apply to me, i need your advice, thanks

Hi Kunwoo,

From the sound of it, you will need to set up a two armed loadmaster.

One "arm"/interface will sit in the 172 network and the other arm in the Server Network - 192.

You could create a Virtual Service on the Loadmaster with an address 172.x.x.x and configure Real Servers with the addresses of the Servers.

I would recommend you try our Free Trial of Loadmaster  :

https://kemptechnologies.com/server-load-balancing-appliances/virtual-loadbalancer/vlm-download/

This has all features and will allow you to test out the configuration.

Dear Barry,

Thanks you for your reply,

 

As you mentioned in your reply “The two armed loadmaster, is there any more detail information?

I just found out a video in your site, but still I couldn’t what is this exactly,

 

And one more thing, I little feel confused what can I choose in your products line,

Hardware Load Balancers? Or Virtual Load Balancers?

 

If I need to use hardware load balancer, LM-3000? Or which one is fit to me?

Thanks

Hi Kunwoo,

The below link should help explain the concept of two armed and one armed:

https://support.kemptechnologies.com/hc/en-us/articles/202214098-Network-deployment-options-on-the-KEMP-LoadMaster

 

In terms of Loadmaster option, we offer both Hardware and Virtual Loadmaster.s The virtual Loadmaster is useful as you can download and deploy in a matter of minutes and test the functionality with a Trial. 

 

For Hardware the Models will depend on the traffic levels and you may wish to consider High Availability options.

Any other Qs, feel free to ask,

 

Barry
