VA Smalltalk Goodie:
Server Smalltalk (SST) Workload Balancer

Description

This code provides an example implementation for a transport-level workload balancer (WLB) for SST applications. The WLB sits in the communications path between an SST client and an SST server. It presents a facade to the SST client, masquerading as an instance of the target server, forwarding each client request to one of several configured server clones.

Supported Platforms

The Workload Balancer (WLB) requires VAST/6.0 and the VAST SST feature. The WLB is not known to have any platform-specific dependencies or limitations.

Installation Instructions

The WLB implementation consists of Smalltalk code only. To install, import and load the single configuration map provided in the ".dat" file.
