Just a quick question. Does FileWave v. 4.0.4 now support automatic load balancing across multiple boosters? I currently have 4 boosters and I'm wondering if I send out a new pref that has all 4 boosters listed will the clients automatically load balance across the 4 boosters or will the first booster that is listed get nailed.

You will use the first in the list until it cant handle anymore load. Then, eventually, some clients will use the second booster (after a timeout).


If you want loadbalacing. Enter the IP for all four boosters in on the same mane in your dns. Then you will have round-robin load balancing.
