Load balancing

The PSM HTML5 gateway can be load balanced as you would load balance any other web server (or the PVWA).

You can deploy farms of HTML5 gateway servers behind a load balancer. Then when adding a configured PSM Gateway server, use the relevant farm's Virtual IP (VIP) in the Address parameter. For details, see Add PSM HTML5 Gateway server.

You can perform a health check on the servers. For details, see Health Check.
