Setting Up a Load Balancer
You can configure a load balancer on your Sisense Linux cloud instances to automatically distribute traffic across multiple nodes. This provides an externally-accessible IP address that sends traffic to the correct port on your cluster nodes.
Sisense supports load balancing for Google GKE, Microsoft AKS, and Amazon EKS.
You can enable a load balancer when configuring your deployment as described here or you can update your configuration file and then run the configuration script again.
To implement load balancing:
- In the cloud_config.yaml file, edit the following parameters:
cloud_load_balancer: Set to true.
gateway_port: Set to a port between 30,000-32,000.
- After you have set the remaining parameters, run the script with the following command.
