According to the proposed architecture for Stratos 4.0.0 release, Stratos Load Balancer is expected to be light-weight and loosely coupled with Stratos core & underlying Apache Synapse components. As a result we could extract out components and data structures which might be common to any other load balancer if we were to integrate a third party load balancer with Stratos.
In-addition Stratos Load Balancer is expected to support following major features:
1. Session Management
2. Load Balancing Algorithms
3. Statistics Reporting
4. State Replication for Clustering
5. Domain Mappings
This task was created for achieving the above goal using sub tasks.
