Hello all, I am trying to figure out how to load balance two servers using DNS Traffic Control
I want to use ratio and make is so that server1, 10.10.10.10 gets 75% of the traffic and server 2, 10.10.10.20, gets the other 25%. Does anyone know what the ratios I should use in the pool set up?

NIOS Admin Guide provides a similar example under section "Load Balancing Methods for DNS Traffic Control" > "Using the Ratio: Fixed method". Please review.
In your case, you can put server1 and server2 in two individual pools, and configure pool1 with weight = 75 and pool2 with weight = 25. This will make sure that DNS server will respond from pool1 75% of the time and from pool2 25% of the time.
