The SBC Core supports configuring a Load Balancing Service (LBS) to distribute INVITE and REGISTER details between SBC platforms or D-SBC instances, as applicable. 

To disable Load Balancing for a particular zone, refer to Zone - Retarget Support - CLI.

M-SBC Note

To configure a LBS on a PKT port (any IP Interface other than MGMT), execute the command "set system clusterAdmin clusterComm type ip" before the LBS configuration on M-SBC. Refer to Cluster Admin - CLI for configuration details.

Use the 'show table/system loadBalancingService...' command to view Load Balancing Service configuration status details. Refer to Show Table System for details.

 

Note

You must configure Cluster Admin before configuring D-SBC signaling port, Load balancing service and DNS group parameters for intra-cluster VNFC communication.

Refer to Cluster Admin - CLI for configuration details.
