IP Load Balancer

The IP load balancer will enable you to spread the load of your website across multiple front end servers. The IP load balanacer is managed by the API at: https://api.ovh.com/console, from here you can call the functions from the API to configure your IP load balancer against your server.

By default the load balancer is only authorized on a per data center level. This means if your load balancer is ordered against one datacenter, only servers within that datacenter can be submitted to the load balancer. There are options to add additional datacenters to the load balancer if your looking to add datacenter redundancy.

Add another POP to your IP LB:

https://api.ovh.com/console/#/order/ip/loadBalancing/{serviceName}/pop#POST

You can add an server to the IP LB with:

https://api.ovh.com/console/#/ip/loadBalancing/{serviceName}/backend#POST.

To remove the server you would use:

https://api.ovh.com/console/#/ip/loadBalancing/{serviceName}/backend/{backend}#DELETE

To change the weight of the server:

https://api.ovh.com/console/#/ip/loadBalancing/{serviceName}/backend/{backend}/setWeight#POST
