Re: Slashdot: Providers Ignoring DNS TTL?
Once upon a time, Dean Anderson <firstname.lastname@example.org> said: > If there are > multiple anycasted caching servers behind a specific IP address, then > those several cache's will each have a different state. Since, [as I > explained, and was supposed by the poster], there is "some kind of load > balancing going on", and also since implementors of anycast caches have > posted questions and explained their purposes [which could be seen as > "load balancing"], this is a likely explanation. Not really. Normally, anycasting should be stable; if you send a request to the same IP address you will get a response from the same server. There may be additional load balancing being done where at a particular location that IP maps to multiple servers (we've done that with TruCluster for example), but that has nothing to do with anycasting. -- Chris Adams <email@example.com> Systems and Network Administrator - HiWAAY Internet Services I don't speak for anybody but myself - that's enough trouble.
