    weighted round robin..

    Anyone know of a good way to do this for load balancing? (without special hardware)

    Came across a solution using cnames but not sure if its really a good idea.

    HI MegaCGI,

    There are two ways of implementing this, one of which is through software on the servers themselves. Windows 2000 Server and Windows Server 2003 both ship with load-balancing utilities, as do most Linux implementations, and there are several third-party products around too.

    The other approach is to build a load-balancing cluster using an external switch not a regular Layer 2 product, but one capable of making routing decisions at Layer 4 . The switch is positioned between the cluster and its connection to the local network or outside world and routes request at wire speed for maximum throughput.
