After 3 months of further development, the latest release of ZLB is now available for testing. Release Candidate 2, has added a number of key features to the already fully functioning service, by allowing:-
- New ‘Test Failover button’ – This always allow the administrator to ‘see’ the fail over process between Master and Backup nodes. After 3 seconds, the cluster with revert back to the original configuration. This is a re-wording of the old ‘Force Failover’ button.
- Maintenance button for backends – This allows for a ‘real’ server to be taken offline for maintenance (without impacting on the load balancing algorithms) Useful for web servers which may have a perfectly working service, but that need pages refreshing
- GUI management Port – Now you have the ability to move the management port away from Port 444
Plus over a dozen more new features, improvements and bug fixes – for a full list of new features can be found here
