[THIN] Re: Load Balancing

No.  Load Manager doesn't really use Resource Manager Metrics.  Keep in mind
that Resource Metrics are nothing more than Perfmon Counters.  And, Load
Manager uses PerfMon Counters to compute the current load of the server.
What hardware is on the new server and in your existing servers?  It just
might be that the Load Evaluator you have is computing a lower average load
than your existing servers.  Also, could you reply back with the output from
QFARM /LOAD?  Feel free to change the server names to fake server names.

Does the load evaluator use Resource Monitor metrics to determine load on a
machine?
 
We have a custom load evaluator that looks at processor and memory
utilization.  We recently added a server to the mix and load balanced it
with our evaluator.  Load balancing was not working.  Nfuse was sending most
of the users to this new box.  It ended up taking on 80 users.
 
We also noticed that Resource Manager only had a couple of metrics added for
this server.  Does the load balancer use Resource Monitor metrics to
determine the load of the machine?  Since the metrics were missing perhaps
it thought the machine had no load and that is why it sent all the users to
this machine.
 
Thoughts?
