Goal

Extend client connections are load balanced across proxy service members. By default, a proxy-based strategy is used that distributes client connections to proxy services that are being utilized the least. Custom proxy-based strategies can be created or the default strategy can be modified as required. As an alternative, a client-based load balance strategy can be implemented by creating a client-side address provider or by relying on randomized client connections to proxy services.

The client-based load balancing strategy relies upon a client address provider implementation to dictate the distribution of clients across proxy service members. If no client address provider implementation is provided, the extend client tries each configured proxy service in a random order until a connection is successful.

Coherence*Extend can be used with F5 BIG-IP Local Traffic Manager (LTM), which provides hardware-based load balancing.
