Great Post on How SharePoint 2010 Load Balancing Works
In reviewing our client’s SharePoint 2010 / FAST farm topology, a lot of questions came up about how load balancing works in SharePoint 2010. I came across blog post entitled: How I Learned To Stop Worrying and Love The SharePoint Topology Service by Josh Gavant.
It’s an excellent read and goes into some detail about how SharePoint 2010 Load Balancing works. I recommend reading it.
