An overview of load balancing
How load balancing works
The PS Hub has a very useful feature called load balancing which can
be used to configure segments in a stack of PS Hubs. The aim of load
balancing is to increase total throughput across the segments in a
stack, providing more efficient segments.
As load balancing configures segments in a stack, you cannot perform
workgrouping at the same time. In effect, the segments participating in
load balancing are a single, high-capacity workgroup.
For load balancing to work properly, there must be either:
A PS Hub 50 in the stack
A switch connected to the hubs in the stack
