Using a Load Balancer for Plex Media Server

skraatzskraatz Posts: 4Members, Plex Pass Plex Pass

I would like to know if anyone is using a Load Balancer to distribute the Plex load on servers on the backend. I want to connect a F5 load balancer using one public IP address and port then distribute that to multiple servers behind based on resources available to the the server.

This way I only have to see one server in the list however it will distrbute the load (RAM, Video, etc.) on the backend.

I am currently using a Netpp storage Filer for all file hosting.

Thanks for any insight to issues you might of had during the setup.

    Curious-- Did you ever do this setup? I am planning on throwing an F5 in front of Plex, but not for the purposes of load balancing, but more for security.

    I was unable to get it working. Sorry
