Interface LoadBalancer

All Known Implementing Classes:
AbstractLoadBalancer, RandomLB, RoundRobinLB, StaticLB

public interface LoadBalancer
LoadBalancer allows you to send operations to one of a number of endpoints(Members). It is up to the implementation to use different load balancing policies.

If Client is configured with ClientNetworkConfig.isSmartRouting(), only the operations that are not key based will be router to the endpoint returned by the LoadBalancer. If it is not ClientNetworkConfig.isSmartRouting(), LoadBalancer will not be used.

For configuration see ClientConfig.setLoadBalancer(LoadBalancer)
