Configuring load balancing using Apache HTTP Server 2.2

You can configure Apache HTTP Server 2.2 and the Apache Mod_JK module to perform weighted round-robin load balancing with multiple BlackBerry Social Networking Application Proxy instances. Requests from the BlackBerry Client for Microsoft SharePoint are distributed between the file transfer and client download services of multiple instances.

To configure load balancing using the Apache HTTP Server, you must perform the following tasks:

  • Install and configure multiple BlackBerry Social Networking Application Proxy instances.
  • Configure the server.xml files for each BlackBerry Social Networking Application Proxy instance.
  • Configure the Apache HTTP Server and Apache Mod_JK module to support the BlackBerry Social Networking Application Proxy instances.
  • Configure IT policies for the BlackBerry Client for Microsoft SharePoint.
This diagram shows the components that are described in the text above.
