Server Cluster Load Balance - Help Card Start of Chapter

Hits - Number of hits to the specified server. A hit is a single action on the Web server as it appears in the log file. A visitor downloading a single file is logged as a single hit, while a visitor requesting a Web page including two images registers as three hits on the server; one hit is the request for the .html page, and two additional hits are requests for the downloaded image files. While the volume of hits is an indicator of Web server traffic, it is not an accurate reflection of how many pages are being looked at.

Bytes - Number of bytes of data transmitted by the specified server.

Server Name - The name of the server being analyzed.



This should give you a good indication of how well the load is balanced across all servers. If the number of hits or kilobytes is substantially different, the servers' work load is unevenly balanced.
