• Install the PingDirectoryProxy server on austin-proxy1.
  • Use the create-initial-proxy-config tool to provide our initial setup for entry balancing.

    The initial setup includes defining multiple subtree views and global indexes in support of entry balancing.

  • Change the placement algorithm of the austin-proxy-01 server to use an entry-count placement algorithm.

    This algorithm is used to select the backend set to which to forward an add request. It looks at the number of entries in the backend sets and forwards the add request to the backend with either the fewest or the most entries, depending on the configuration. You can also configure the placement algorithm to make the decision based on the on-disk database size rather than the number of entries.
