    Jason,

    You should look at the Nortel Alteon Content Director - it's designed
    to do what you describe in looking at the proximity to the client rather
    than the client DNS - an important distinction.

    Phil.

    Subject: [load balancing] GSLB & Client's proximity to server farms

    Based on everyone's experiences here, does any vendor have a sound
    method for dynamically directing clients to GSLB server farms based on
    the client's proximity to the farms? From everything I've read, it
    would seem that the current GSLB implementations direct the client to
    the site that has the best health and response time based on
    calculations done between the SLB and the servers in a certain farm,
    not between the GSLBs and the clients.

    Any info?
