Good morning dear Community!

After studying the possibilities of the new Load Balancer SmartConnector, we have decided to run several tests in our Lab and share the results with everyone who's interested


I'm glad to say that, although this product is pretty new, it's also quite promising. I'm sure that, once the related documentation and a couple of issues get improved, it will be a 'must' in every ArcSight deployment.


Just some quick notes about the document:

- You will find several colors across the file. they are just a visual way of showing the results and they have the usual meaning (Green is better than orange, which in turn is better than red).

- We have only tested TCP protocol. The tests on UDP are still in the ToDo list.

- Although not specified, RoundRobin and AggregationPreferred rules have been used during the tests.


Please, feel free to discuss the document, suggest new tests and share your thoughts. I'm sure HP will value having useful feedback in order to improve the product.


Enjoy the reading!
