AirWatch supports integration with a load balancer for improved performance and high availability. However, successful integration requires a number of additional, client-side configurations.

In order for the load balancer to function properly with Content Gateway, configure the additional client-side settings.

  • Configure the proper network changes to allow the Content Gateway to access various internal resources over the necessary ports.
  • Configure load balancers to persist a connection from a client to the same load balanced node with an algorithm of your choosing. AirWatch supports simple algorithms such as Round Robins and more sophisticated ones such as Least Connections.
  • Configure load balancers to Send Original HTTP Headers to avoid device connectivity issues. Content Gateway uses information in the request's HTTP header to authenticate devices.
