Weighted Round Robin

    Please note, the following example uses a hypothetical infrastructure scenario and should only be used as a guide.

1. Navigate to Managed DNS > A Record Pools.  For Weighted Round Robin with CNAME records, click on CNAME Pools

2. Click the Add New Pool button. 

3. In this screen, you will configure your Weighted RR records.

A) Name: Give the pool configuration an identifiable name.
B) Num Return: enter the number of IP’s you want returned in the pool.
C) Min Available: enter the minimum number of IP’s that must be available in the pool.
D) IP: Designate the IP addresses you want in the pool.
E) Weight: Enter a weight for each record. If you create multiple records with the same weight, then you will have configured traditional load balancing. However, if you configure records with unequal weights then greater the weight, the more traffic will be served to that record.
F) Sonar Check: If you have a Sonar Check enabled you can add it to the record here.
G) Add Another IP: Additional IP’s can also be added to load balance traffic, just click the Add Another IP button. You must have at least two records in order to setup Round Robin or Weighted Round Robin.
H) Save: Click 

4. A record can be permanently deleted from a pool by clicking the delete_icon icon next to the IP.
