  • Publication number: 20220006859
    Abstract: A distributed computing system uses dynamically calculates a subset size for each of a plurality of load balancers. Each of a plurality of load balancers logs requests from client devices for connections to back-end servers and periodically sends a request report to a traffic aggregator, which aggregates the report requests from the load balancers in the corresponding zone. Each traffic aggregator sends the aggregated request data to a traffic controller, which aggregates the request data to determine a total number of requests received at the system. The total request data is transmitted through each traffic aggregator to each load balancer instance, which calculates a percentage of the total number of requests produced by the load balancer and determines a subset size based on the calculated percentage.
