Viewing the enterprise load balancing load map

Learn how to view the current enterprise load balancer load map.

About this task

The enterprise load balancing application uses the load information from managed units to create a load map. This load map provides the data that directs load balancing and managed unit allocation activities.

Procedure

  1. To view the current load map as a report in the GuardiumĀ® UI, navigate to Manage > Reports > Unit Utilization > Load Balancer.
  2. It is also possible to view the current load map using the Guardium API. Issue the following GuardAPI command: grdapi get_load_balancer_load_map.

    The load map should look like the following example:

    ID=0
