Perlbal for load balancing
Perlbal can process hundreds of millions of hits daily on a medium hardware server. No wonder it’s used on high load sites like Vox and LiveJournal.
It offers load distribution to multiple back-end servers and different load balancing algorithms that will mostly suit all web site needs. We will be testing this proxy software and compare how does it perform comparing to nginx.
